From the perspective of nanocritics, legal thought bearing specifically on nanotechnoscience (NTS) by name is largely a null zone. However, the gravity of a dispersed and thematically coherent ethical-legal construct is clearly discernable. It encourages and incubates novel technologies as a species and is indifferent to individual titles, disciplinary position or marketing savvy.
