"Melinda Fagan's book on the philosophy of stem cell biology is a superb discussion of this exciting field of contemporary science, and the first book-length philosophical treatment of the subject. It contains a detailed and insightful examination of stem cell science, its structure, methods, and challenges....To conclude, this book, which fills a major gap in contemporary philosophy of science, will be of interest to all philosophers of biology, to philosophers interested in experimental sciences and scientific practice, as well as to stem cell researchers themselves. As an extended discussion of the philosophy of stem cell biology, it will constitute a central work for years to come. The book serves as an ideal point of departure for conducting further philosophical research on the fascinating field of stem cell science, as well as an exemplar for how to approach philosophically today's experimental sciences; a truly impressive achievement."
