Summary
In this volume, Eigen places under sustained scrutiny some of our most basic modern assumptions about inheritance, genealogy, blood relations, and racial categories in order to answer the question, what constitutes "good" bonds among humans, and what compels us to determine them so across generations as both a physical and a metaphysical attribute?€
