The conclusion gives the history of the 'no property rule' relating to the human body and its parts, and the implications thereof. The inadequacies of the law in providing protection to entitlements to bodily material meant that exceptions have emerged. These exceptions incorporated both Lockean and Hegelian reasoning. The result is a property law that is unusually ambiguous. Finally, the conclusion sets out the aim of the book's recommendations: to attempt to resist the coupling of the exclusionary boundary with contingency rights in the law that applies to the use and storage of bodily material.
