About the Author

John H. Evans is professor of sociology at the University of California, San Diego. He is the author of two books that explain the origins of American public bioethical debate and one that examines religious people's views of reproductive genetics. He has also published many articles on religion and politics as well as science and religion.

Reviews

"In this unusual, interesting exploration, Evans differentiates among four anthropologies of a what "human" is and what human rights and their sources are. The empirical foundation comes from 355 structured private surveys, carried out among PhD students in biology, PhD candidates in the humanities, and members of the general American populace." CHOICE "Evans' most significant conclusion distinguishes two realms. Academics talk about "human beings" (the entity itself), while members of the general public focus on "being human" (the social interactions that make one a good human)." --C. E. Welch, University at Buffalo, SUNY
