About this book

Natural kinds are an important topic in current philosophical debate. Previous work on kinds has looked at the relationship between concepts of kinds and the contents of the world. This edited collection examines kinds from a new focal point, that of the empirical activities and categorizations used by scientists to define them. An esteemed group of contributors explore the nature of kinds and kinding across chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, linguistics, and race and gender studies.
