    Putting the Subject Back Into Color: Accessibility in Goethe's Zur Farbenlehre.Myles W. Jackson - 2008 - Perspectives on Science 16 (4):pp. 378-391.
    This article discusses Goethe’s theory of color and his diatribes against the Newtonians by situating his work within two contexts, one political and the other intellectual. The political context is Goethe’s dismay over the rise of obscurantism, typified by the Illuminati movement of the late eighteenth century, with secrecy and elitism as its hallmarks. The intellectual context is the tradition of German Idealism. He was fundamentally committed to understanding the relationship between the subject, or the investigator of nature, and the (...)

    The Biology of Race: Searching for No Overlap.Myles W. Jackson - 2014 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 57 (1):87-104.
    The biology of race has a long and contentious history, particularly in theUnited States. Thus, it should not be surprising that the use of racial and ethnic categories by some biomedical researchers over the past 20 years has occasioned heated debate among historical, sociological, anthropological, bioethical, genetic, biomedical and molecular biological circles. Differences between the genetics of populations have generated vastly more controversy than genetic differences among individuals of a particular population (Fujimura, Duster, and Rajagopalan 2008). Contemporary racial categories are (...)

    Introduction.Myles W. Jackson - 2015 - Perspectives on Science 23 (1):1-12.
    Gene patenting has captured the headlines for the past four years, thanks in large part to the lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union and the Public Patent Foundation brought against Myriad Genetics for the patents on the breast cancer genes, BRCA 1 and 2. Despite their recent celebrity, human gene patents have been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for over thirty years. The commodification of the human body is not all that recent: one might be tempted (...)
