Human Nature is a sprawling exploration of how the biological discovery called CRISPR could change life as we know it. The discovery opened avenues to not only repair breaks in the DNA code, but potentially eliminate the defect from future generations. While many in the scientific community praise the revolutionary finding, CRISPR comes with its own share of difficult societal and moral questions. Who gets to decide what changes are considered necessary or reasonable? Will governments allow everyone access or just those who can afford to pay the high cost? Where is the ethical line when if comes to altering the genetic makeup of future generations? Human Nature’s greatest strength is its ability to present the dense information in an easily digestible way.
