Editor's Note: Bioethics, as Jonathan Moreno points out, is often observed to have become "politicized." In an effort to exploresome of the implications of this assessment, Moreno decided two years ago to write a book that would draw on his experiencesin the academic and policy worlds. In that book, The Body Politic (Bellevue Literary Press, 2011), Moreno uses his unique takeon the history, philosophy and sociology of science, political philosophy, ethics, and science policy, to explore what he callsthe "new biopolitics." Theoretical & Applied Ethics is honored to present an adaptation of the Introduction to that book, whichwe believe will further establish Moreno as a leading voice in our discipline.
