Twenty-one philosophers join forces to investigate the implications of the Jurassic Park franchise for our lives, our values, and our future. Human beings live and thrive by modifying nature, but when do the risks of changing nature outweigh the likely benefits? If it’s true that “Life will find a way,” should we view any modified or newly reconstituted life as a hazard? The new scientific information we could gain by bringing back T. Rex or other dinosaurs is immense, including greater understanding of biology leading to immeasurable medical benefits, but should we choose to let sleeping dinosaurs lie? And if we do bring them back by reconstituting them from ancient DNA, are they really what they were, or is something missing? If life will find a way, then why isn’t the Dodo still around? How close are we, as a matter of fact, to achieving Jurassic Park? Are we really likely to see reconstituted dinosaurs or other ancient species in the near future? How do the different forces—human curiosity, profitability, and philanthropy—interact to determine what actually happens in such cases? What moral standards should be applied to those who try to bring back lost worlds? If velociraptors could talk, what would they tell us? The idea of bringing back the dead and the powerful is not limited to biological species. It also applies to bringing back old gods, old philosophies, old institutions, and old myths. If revived and once again let loose to walk the Earth, these too may turn out to be more dangerous than we bargained for.

Wealthy businessman John Hammond has created an animal theme park called Jurassic Park, featuring cloned dinosaurs and prehistoric plants, on the Costa Rican island of Isla Nublar. Following an accident at the site in which a worker is killed, lawyer Donald Gennaro, representing Hammond's investors, insists that he gets experts to certify his park is safe. Hammond takes a group consisting of Gennaro, mathematician and chaos theorist Ian Malcolm, paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler, to see the park. They are shocked to see living dinosaurs, including Brachiosaurus, upon arriving. Hammond reveals that the dinosaurs were created by a team of genetic scientists through cloning, a process that uses preserved ancient DNA from mosquitoes that are found inside amber, with DNA from frogs being used to fill in missing genomes. Chief geneticist Dr. Henry Wu points out that breeding is prevented by having all dinosaurs genetically engineered as females, but Malcolm theorizes that nature will overcome this obstacle in time. Hammond arranges for the group, joined by his grandchildren Tim and Lex, to take a tour of the island in electric vehicles, while he oversees the tour from the control room with computer worker Ray Arnold and lead computer programmer Dennis Nedry. The group encounters a sick Triceratops during the tour, but other dinosaurs fail to appear, and the tour is cut short when a tropical storm approaches the island. Sattler stays behind with the park's veterinarian to study the Triceratops, while the rest of the group heads back to the visitor center. Nedry had earlier been approached by Dodgson, a representative of a rival corporation, to steal dinosaur embryos for them. With most of the park's employees leaving for the mainland, Nedry shuts down the park's security systems to gain access to the embryos and the island's dock, where he will drop off the embryos. Nedry's sabotage also cuts power to the tour vehicles, stranding them in front of the Tyrannosaurus rex paddock as the storm hits. The Tyrannosaurus escapes the paddock and attacks the vehicles, devouring Gennaro, injuring Malcolm, and forcing Grant, Tim and Lex into the park's dinosaur reserves. Sattler, joining the park's game warden Robert Muldoon, attempts to rescue them, but they are only able to find Malcolm and must retreat with him when the Tyrannosaurus briefly pursues them. Nedry, having acquired the embryos, attempts to reach the dock, but loses his way in the storm, becomes stranded, and is killed by a Dilophosaurus. The storm passes, and the following morning, Grant and the children come across broken egg shells. Grant deduces that the dinosaurs were given the DNA of west African frogs, who can change from male to female in a single-sex environment, thus proving Malcolm right that breeding control methods would fail. The trio proceeds to return to the visitor center.
