Abstract

Les sciences modernes ont prétendu s'affranchir des intérêts de tous ordres et faire sortir la subjectivité et la morale de l'arène scientifique pour donner à voir des vérités absolues. Lorraine Daston montre que, à l'inverse, tout le travail de l'historien des sciences consiste à restituer l'imbrication de la morale et de la science. Car, loin d'être désintéressé, l'homme de sciences est bel et bien animé par des principes de justification et des impératifs moraux, ce que l'auteure appelle une ± économie morale de la science : ± économie , parce qu'on identifie des régularités, un système organisé ; ± morale parce qu'il s'agit de prendre en compte, dans le processus même de la recherche, les valeurs et affects du savant qui la mène. Vouloir réinscrire les prises de position épistémologiques dans un horizon à la fois social et éthique ne consiste pas simplement à faire intervenir la psychologie et les motivations du savant, l'idéologie ou les intérêts, mais bien plutôt à étudier la façon dont les valeurs participent des mises à l'épreuve évaluatives par lesquelles se construisent les vérités scientifiques. Le présent essai, inédit en français et introduit par Stéphane Van Damme, a fortement contribué au renouvellement récent des approches en histoire des sciences. Il a permis, avec d'autres travaux, comme ceux de Simon Schaeffer, de rompre avec une certaine téléologie, en offrant une compréhension plus contextualisée de l'émergence des sciences modernes.--

Abstract

Thousands of people from more than eighty countries have traveled to China since 2001 to undergo fetal cell transplantation. Galvanized by the potential of stem and fetal cells to regenerate damaged neurons and restore lost bodily functions, people grappling with paralysis and neurodegenerative disorders have ignored the warnings of doctors and scientists back home in order to stake their futures on a Chinese experiment. Biomedical Odysseys looks at why and how these individuals have entrusted their lives to Chinese neurosurgeons operating on the forefront of experimental medicine, in a world where technologies and risks move faster than laws can keep pace. Priscilla Song shows how cutting-edge medicine is not just about the latest advances in biomedical science but also encompasses transformations in online patient activism, surgical intervention, and borderline experiments in health care bureaucracy.Bringing together a decade of ethnographic research in hospital wards, laboratories, and online patient discussion forums, Song opens up important theoretical and methodological horizons in the anthropology of science, technology, and medicine. She illuminates how poignant journeys in search of fetal cell cures become tangled in complex webs of digital mediation, the entrepreneurial logics of postsocialist medicine, and fraught debates about the ethics of clinical experimentation.Using innovative methods to track the border-crossing quests of Chinese clinicians and their patients from around the world, Biomedical Odysseys is the first book to map the transnational life of fetal cell therapies.

Abstract

Recent decades have witnessed profound shifts in the politics of medicine and the biological sciences. Members of several professions, including philosophers, lawyers and social scientists, now discuss and help regulate issues that were once left to doctors and scientists, in a form of outside involvement known as ‘bioethics’. The making of British bioethics provides the first in-depth study of the growing demand for this outside involvement in Britain, where bioethicists have become renowned and influential ‘ethics experts’. The book moves beyond existing histories, which often claim that bioethics arose in response to questions surrounding new procedures such as in vitro fertilisation. It shows instead that British bioethics emerged thanks to a dynamic interplay between changing sociopolitical concerns and the aims of specific professional groups and individuals. Highlighting this interplay has important implications for our understanding of how issues such as embryo experiments, animal research and assisted dying became high profile ‘bioethical’ concerns in late twentieth century Britain. And it also helps us appreciate how various individuals and groups intervened in and helped create the demand for bioethics, playing a major role in their transformation into ‘ethics experts’. The making of British bioethics draws on a wide range of materials, including government archives, popular sources, professional journals, and original interviews with bioethicists and politicians. It is clearly written and will appeal to historians of medicine and science, general historians, bioethicists, and anyone interested in what the emergence of bioethics means for our notions of health, illness and morality.
