The hunt for our genetic past 

Christian Frei, Maxim Arbugaev: Genesis 2.0

The Agamben and the Ethics of Abstinence

Giorgio Agamben: Community to come

: The community to come is a learned, rich, complex and sometimes obscure text.

Mikkel Wold (ed.): Take back the ethics. Market thinking and its consequences

: When all things in life get a price tag on them, they get easily corrupted.
