... Indeed, in my recent book Controlling Human Heredity: 1865 to the Present, I
argue that the history of eugenics elucidates a number of troubling trends.4 But
neither the history nor its lessons are simple. ... to be wary of the prospect of
genetics in the hands of the state; a focus on eugenicists' advocacy of birth
control teaches us that acts are not necessarily benign because their agents are

In its day it was legitimate science but today it haunts any discussion of
controlling fertility or heredity. Broadly considered, eugenics represented not only
the scientific study of human heredity and the potential controls of the heredity of
the population, but also the policies that were created based on these scientific
principles; because of this dual nature, eugenics remains hard to define.
Eugenics was a dominant social, scientific, and political philosophy for thinking
about differences in ...

This might be expressed in terms of the increased powers of prediction and
control over nature. If this were applied by analogy to the social sciences, it might
illuminate how their naturalist desire for overarching laws of the social world
could be explained by reference to greater capacities for organization and
administration of populations. But it could also throw some light on the case we
are concerned with, that of human genetics. For the early history of the attraction
towards genetic ...
