The language of cloning

I note details of an interesting article by Eric Jensen of Warwick on the current debate about human cloning, at Academia.edu. It first appeared in 2005, but is now available online.

An instructive dispute

An instructive dispute concerning Jane Shaw's recent book Octavia, Daughter of God on the Panacea Society, and more specifically the review of it by Frances Stonor Saunders in the Guardian. Bartholomew's Notes seems to clear the matter up, perhaps more so than the author's own response on the Guardian site.

Whilst not being anywhere near as dramatic as some others of the comments on the article suggest, it does show the pitfalls of research being funded by the (heterdox) organisations, the history of which the work concerns.
