About this book

Systems biology is a vigorous and expanding discipline, in many ways a successor to genomics and perhaps unprecendented in its combination of biology with a great many other sicences, from physics to ecology, from mathematics to medicine, and from philosophy to chemistry. Studying the philosophical foundations of systems biology may resolve a longer standing issue, i.e., the extent to which Biology is entitled to its own scientific foundations rather than being dominated by existing philosophies.


Proposed Table of Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Philosophical foundations of systems biology 3. Methodology of systems biology 4. The role of theory, models and simulation in systems biology 5. Organization in biological systems 6. Conclusions
