Dr. Jonathan Moreno will discuss his book, “The Battle Over Science in America: How Biology is Changing our Politics” at Hofstra University on March 5, 2013.

We have entered what is called the “biological century” and a new biopolitics has emerged to address the implications for America’s collective value system, our well-being, and ultimately, our future. In his book, “The Body Politic,” Moreno recognizes and assesses this new force in our political landscape—one that fuels today’s culture wars and has motivated politicians of all stripes to reexamine their platforms. As Moreno explains the most contentious issues, he also offers an engaging history of the intersection between science and democracy in American life, a reasoned analysis of how different political ideologies view scientific controversies, and a vision for how the new biopolitics can help shape the quality of our lives.
