Traces the threads that link the legendary inventor Daedalus, Goethe's tragic "Faust", the automata-making magicians of "E.T.A. Hoffman" and Mary Shelley's "Victor Frankenstein". This title argues that these old tales and myths are alive and well, subtly manipulating the current debates about assisted conception, embryo research and human cloning.
