"Samantha Frost offers a clear, accessible, and theoretically invigorated exploration of the life sciences, demonstrating the need for a new theory of the human." — Susan Merrill Squier, author of Liminal Lives: Imagining the Human at the Frontiers of Biomedicine
"Samantha Frost has fashioned an exciting new conceptualization of human nature by creatively synthesizing a deep dive into contemporary biology with mastery of humanist theory. By explicating and analyzing biological discoveries revealing that the boundaries between DNA, self, and the environment are much more fluid than ever imagined, Biocultural Creatures builds an important bridge between the humanities and the sciences." — Gene E. Robinson, Director, Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
