Summary

In Sex and the Origins of Death, William R. Clark looks at life and death at the level of the cell, as he addresses such profound questions as why we age, why death exists, and why death and sex go hand in hand. We learn that every cell in our body has a self-destruct program embedded into it and that cell suicide is in fact a fairly commonplace event. But why do our cells have such programs? And why must we die? To shed light on this question, Clark reaches far back in evolutionary history, to the moment when "inevitable death" (death from aging) first appeared.

In Sex and the Origins of Death, William Clark ranges far and wide over fascinating terrain. This brilliant, profound volume illuminates the miraculous workings of life at its most elemental level and finds in these tiny spaces the answers to some of our largest questions.
