內容簡介

普立茲獎得主、《萬病之王》作者最新力作,從小基因解密人類社會最奧妙的一道謎題。

  1856年,在摩拉維亞一處偏僻的奧古斯丁修道院,有位修士偶然發現了遺傳這門學問。遺傳與達爾文的演化論相關,並在1940年代與納粹恐怖的優生主義擦撞出可怕的火花。在戰後,基因遺傳成為生物學,改寫了我們對於性慾、氣質、選擇與自由意志的理解。

  這本書描寫的正是一群人類智慧的故事,從達爾文、孟德爾到弗朗西斯.克里克、詹姆斯.沃森、羅莎琳.富蘭克林,以及數千位現今仍在解碼人體最奧妙密碼的科學家。

  《The Gene》是一部史詩巨作,描寫科學理念如何在現實生活中成真。在氣勢滂礡的寫作野心中,《The Gene》讓我們藉著人類最微小的基因單位,一窺人類過去與未來的願景。

  The Gene is the story of one of the most powerful and dangerous ideas in our history,
from bestselling, prize-winning author Siddhartha Mukherjee.

  Spanning the globe and several centuries, The Gene is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code that makes and defines humans, that governs our form and function.

  The story of the gene begins in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where a monk stumbles on the idea of a ‘unit of heredity’. It intersects with Darwin’s theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms post-war biology. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, temperament, choice and free will. This is a story driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds – from Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel to Francis Crick, James Watson and Rosalind Franklin, and the thousands of scientists still working to understand the code of codes.

  This is an epic, moving history of a scientific idea coming to life, by the author of The Emperor of All Maladies. But woven through The Gene, like a red line, is also an intimate history – the story of Mukherjee’s own family and its recurring pattern of mental illness, reminding us that genetics is vitally relevant to everyday lives. These concerns reverberate even more urgently today as we learn to “read” and “write” the human genome – unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children.

  Majestic in its ambition, and unflinching in its honesty, The Gene gives us a definitive account of the fundamental unit of heredity – and a vision of both humanity’s past and future.
