This volume presents eight essays, written by highly eminent researchers, on our perception of the human body in society, popular culture, science, and the arts. Topics range from the remarkable molecular processes that occur during the growth and development of the body and the unravelling of the secrets of the DNA that builds it, to the ethics of reproduction and our perception of death and of the body as art. The final chapter describes the events surrounding the discovery of a body frozen in the high mountains of the Alps 5000 years ago.
