Génétique, société et pouvoir : le débat contemporain

Abstract : The public has become largely familiar with the subjects of genetics and medically assisted procreation through a proliferation of information which come from various sources : though those who praise the benefits, from others who warn of the dangers and from a third source which advocates the exploitation of benefits while protecting from abuses through ethical and judicial restraint. However, society at large remains ignorant of the scientific and technical aspects of this fascinating subject on the cutting edge of medical research and in the intersection of personal and public attention. This subject gives birth to a clamor and an uneasiness which seems to hide a particular trend nevertheless perceived through certain signs in society. the fruitless approaches based on the supreme place given to reason and on the adoption of "quick-fix" methods governed by economic concerns, the quest to satisfy personal wants and the transferal of responsibility to specialists reinforce this hypothesis, only a political approach dealing with an open examination (?) firstly of the interplay and the limits of different powers and, secondly of the fundamental familial relationships, appears as effective in order to be aware of an unseen development of political trend, arisen out of the interplay between scientific and economic concerns and a spiritual and cultural void.
