Abstract
  • In this book the objectives and implications of research on cleaving embryonic cells are described, and an argument is sketched why such research should be permitted. The argument is then examined from the perspective of the traditions mainly formative of our culture - Greek, Jewish Christian, Hippocratic. A philosopher then concludes that there is such discontinuity between pre-embryonic cellular processes and the recognition of the human personality as to make the original thesis tenable.
