Abstract

Do the mechanisms of epigenetics control our genes? Or maybe not? The field of epigenetics investigates the complex molecular interaction of genes and their physical environment. Epigenetic mechanisms can alter our DNA structurally, change gene expression and thus drive cellular development throughout life. They have currently been associated with numerous diseases and are known to shape both appearance and behavioral patterns. Environmental factors as well as lifestyle choices come into play and impart their

Abstract

Kann man über Nichtwissen, das heißt über etwas, das abwesend ist, kommunizieren? Was ist unter Nichtwissen zu verstehen? Wie ist Nichtwissen erkenntnistheoretisch, wissenschaftskritisch und diskursanalytisch einzuordnen? Welche Rolle spielt Nichtwissen wissenschaftsintern einerseits, in Beratungskontexten und für Fragen der konkreten Entscheidungsfindung andererseits? Philosophen, Soziologen und Sprachwissenschaftler diskutieren über grundlegende begriffliche Unterscheidungen vom Wissen zum Nichtwissen, über die Kommunizierbarkeit von Nichtwissen und seine Relevanz im Wissenschaftsdiskurs, über bio- und umweltethische Fragen und über disziplinär unterschiedliche Nichtwissenskulturen. Einige Beiträge bieten darüber hinaus Einblick in anwendungsorientierte Fragen, insbesondere der Technikfolgenabschätzung, der Nanotechnologie und der Altlastensanierung.

Abstract

How did the Swiss organ donation crisis come about? Despite reforms and advertising campaigns, from the late '80s, Swiss transplant medicine began to lament an increasing mistrust in organ donation and falling donor numbers. Simon Hofmann throws light on the role of doctors, nurses, family members and donees, but also of the media, politicians and the pharmaceutical industry. In doing so, he draws out the relations between hospital practices, public debates, and fictitious narratives about organ smuggling. He tells a complex and contradictory story of modern biomedicine at the edge of life and death, which is shaped as much by economic calculations as by utopian hope and traumatic fears.
