About this book

Over the last three decades, the philosophy of biology has emerged from the shadow of the philosophy of physics and become a respectable and thriving philosophical sub-discipline. This book examines the strides made in the subject, and the fundamental problems in the life sciences.

Herausgekommen ist ein Buch, das zum Nachdenken herausfordert - und das sollte es ja auch! ...ausserordentlich souveran abgefasst und inhaltsreich. Man kann sich nur wunschen, dass das Buch moglichst viele Leser unter den Biologen finden moge. Biologie in unserer Zeit "Als eine grundliche Darstellung einer wissenschaftstheoretischen Analyse der theoretischen Biologie, als Quelle fur Ideen und Literatur moge das Buch viele Leser finden."
