This is a comprehensive volume examining the fundamental questions raised about levels of explanation of the reductionist programme. It evaluates the enormously powerful techniques of molecular biology, and analyses precisely how molecular information has improved our understanding of fundamental biological processes. Specific physiological systems are also discussed, in relation to the appropriateness of proving reductionism explanations. The area of brain and behaviour is given particularly close attention because of the large number of differing views held by scientists about whether an analytical and reductionist approach is even desirable.
