dc.descriptionRecent developments in biotechnology require re/definition of human \"being.\" In this paper, the author suggests that the term \"human being \" is substituted with \"human betweenness.\" This substitution emerges from a philosophical/theological reading of biological texts, such as those by E. O. Wilson, Ernst Mayr, Richard Lewontin, and David Slan Wilson. The betweenness is possible only by the bodily integration (i.e., inclusive fitness or causal efficacy). Yet the need of the integration already presumes the complexity and overlap of the betweennesses (reciprocal altruism or presentational immediacy). The Confucian understanding of morality as the integration of Tao ( the Way) and Te (Virtue) shows the possibility of seeing human \"being\" as human \"betweenness,\"—that is, human \"being\" as the actualization of plural li in the bodiliness.
