Conceptual Change in Biology: Scientific and Philosophical by Alan C. Love

By Alan C. Love

This quantity explores questions on conceptual swap from either medical and philosophical viewpoints through interpreting the hot historical past of evolutionary developmental biology. It positive factors revised papers that originated from the workshop "Conceptual switch in organic technology: Evolutionary Developmental Biology, 1981-2011" held on the Max Planck Institute for the heritage of technology in Berlin in July 2010.

In those papers, philosophers and biologists examine and distinction key thoughts in evolutionary developmental biology and their improvement because the unique, seminal Dahlem convention on evolution and improvement held in Berlin in 1981. a number of the unique clinical individuals from the 1981 convention also are members to this new quantity and, along with different professional biologists and philosophers specializing on those themes, offer an authoritative, finished view at the subject.

Taken jointly, the papers offer novel views on how and why the conceptual panorama has shifted and stabilized specifically methods, yielding insights into the dynamic epistemic adjustments that experience happened over the last 3 many years. This quantity will entice philosophers of biology learning conceptual swap, evolutionary developmental biologists concerned about comprehending the genesis in their box and comparing its destiny instructions, and historians of biology reading this era whilst the intersection of evolution and improvement rose back to prominence in organic science.
