This is a detailed history of one of the most important and dramatic episodes in modern science, recounted from the novel vantage point of the dawn of the information age and its impact on representations of nature, heredity, and society. Drawing on archives, published sources, and interviews, the author situates work on the genetic code (1953-70) within the history of life science, the rise of communication technosciences (cybernetics, information theory, and computers), the intersection of molecular biology with cryptanalysis and linguistics, and the social history of postwar Europe and the United States. Kay draws out the historical specificity in the process by which the central biological problem of DNA-based protein synthesis came to be metaphorically represented as an information code and a writing technology—and consequently as a “book of life.” This molecular writing and reading is part of the cultural production of the Nuclear Age, its power amplified by the centuries-old theistic resonance of the “book of life” metaphor. Yet, as the author points out, these are just metaphors: analogies, not ontologies. Necessary and productive as they have been, they have their epistemological limitations. Deploying analyses of language, cryptology, and information theory, the author persuasively argues that, technically speaking, the genetic code is not a code, DNA is not a language, and the genome is not an information system (objections voiced by experts as early as the 1950s). Thus her historical reconstruction and analyses also serve as a critique of the new genomic biopower. Genomic textuality has become a fact of life, a metaphor literalized, she claims, as human genome projects promise new levels of control over life through the meta-level of information: control of the word (the DNA sequences) and its editing and rewriting. But the author shows how the humbling limits of these scriptural metaphors also pose a challenge to the textual and material mastery of the genomic “book of life.”

"The first translation ever into English of this underground classic of the Italian Renaissance. Marsilio Ficino's Book of life was once supressed for Ficino's approach to images, daemons, and planets in relation to health. The book in this fluent, amusing and exact translation by Charles Boer is a guide to food, drink, sleep, mood, sexuality, song and countless herbal and vegetable concoctions for maintaining the balance of soul, body and spirit. A fouding text of archetypal psychology, it has long been an important source for image-oriented thought.

The Book of Life is a new rendering of one of the most influential transformational books in human history. Originally collected by the students of Epictetus, the most famous teacher of conscious living in turbulent first-century Rome, this book presents a brilliantly simple formula for resolving the most complex problems of psychological and spiritual growth. The bold goal of Epictetus's teachings is to give the seeker a reliable way to experience happiness amidst all the ups and downs of human existence. The essence of the book is contained in its first sentence and is echoed throughout: Misery comes from trying to control things that you are powerless to control, and happiness comes from correctly placing your attention on things you can control. Although there have been many versions of this master-work throughout the centuries, the current rendition aims for something new: an experiential, whole-person understanding so that the reader can feel as well as contemplate its wisdom. *Includes a meditative CD

The search for meaning is at once very old and extremely contemporary. Existential questions about origins, our destiny, and the purpose of our lives are no less meaningful today than they were in previous centuries. Since time immemorial, people have tried to find their way in life and to give it meaning. Do things 'have' meaning? Do we 'give' them meaning? And how can we live life to the full? In this book, the authors attempt to provide a few pointers. In the first part, the historical-cultural evolution from mystery to disenchantment is laid out, particularly with regard to our approach to the Bible. In the second, possible responses to this disenchantment are described, ranging from reactionary fundamentalism to enrichment through critical approaches. Finally, the third part offers biblical answers to fundamental existential questions, including those regarding our origin and destiny, human co-existence and social justice, and the relationship between God and human history, and the human experience of violence, suffering and love. This book highlights the way in which biblical literature is essentially and authentically associated with human existence and our quest for meaning.
