The Limits of the Self

Immunology and Biological Identity

Thomas Pradeu and Translated by Elizabeth Vitanza

  • Offers a critique of the dominant theory in immunology, namely the self-nonself theory, and suggests a new theory to explain the triggering of immune responses
  • Based on the influence of the immune system, it suggests a new response to the question "what is an organism?"
  • Defends the idea that every organism is open to its environment, and partly constituted by its environment
