As we entered the Genomic Era, we find ourselves, in Sophocles' words, 'on the perilous edge of knowing'.  We are very happy to share with our fellow members that our book Oedipus Rex in the Genomic Era has just been published by Palgrave Macmillan, Springer Nature.   This new book:

  • Highlights existential, social, ethical, and legal concerns and dilemmas introduced by the genomic era
  • Examines Sophocles' Oedipus Rex through the prism of contemporary knowledge on genetics
  • Gives an accessible overview of recent developments in behavioural genetics for students, scholars, and professionals

We would be very interested in hearing your thoughts and comments!
