David Wiggins's contribution to metaphysics, logic and ethics has been widely recognized, but the connections between his work and recent issues in the philosophy of biology have been overlooked. This study demonstrates how Wiggins's work can contribute to, as well as benefit from, contemporary debate in this field.
