內容簡介


自然因素:生命、死亡、及操之在手的假象

我們總是有自信能掌握自己的身體、自己的心、甚至是壽命。但其實,科學越來越質疑這樣的想法。例如,身體裡的某些細胞會自己促成腫瘤、並攻擊其他細胞,導致生病甚至死亡。而這些並非我們所能控制的。

因此在這本書中,作者主張我們的身體就是個戰場:每天都在上演我們其實無能為力的戰爭。除了挑戰所有我們堅信的生死觀之外,她也不忘給讀者希望:在大自然中,仍然會有無盡的生命力及可能性存在。

We tend to believe we have agency over our bodies, our minds and even our deaths. Yet emerging science challenges our assumptions of mastery: at the microscopic level, the cells in our bodies facilitate tumours and attack other cells, with life-threatening consequences. In this revelatory book, Barbara Ehrenreich argues that our bodies are a battleground over which we have little control, and lays bare the cultural charades that shield us from this knowledge. Challenging everything we think we know about life and death, she also offers hope - that we find our place in a natural world teeming with animation and endless possibility.
