The issues of too much generalization and overly intrusive particularization cannot be put to rest. The tragic history of eugenics also casts a long shadow over contemporary claims regarding new knowledge about human genetics, to say nothing of the tragic relevance to the current beginnings of our ability to manipulate human genetics directly.
