This chapter provides an introduction to the science of immunology and focuses on racism in the sciences. Immunological ideas provide the primary conceptual framework in which human relations take place in the contemporary world. Therefore, it openly accepts that a certain metaphor of science also now dominates the social interactions in which human relations are rhetorically negotiated and described. The chapter discusses a fundamental bias regarding creative life. Today's world relies heavily on innovation rather than on invention. The Age of Immunology relies heavily on innovation for survival. The psychological transformation and human change are creative ventures that occur when one encounters difference and finds some space in which the net result of an encounter with a genuine “other” is greater than the sum of the parts of the encounter.
