About this book

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. Biological individuality, anti-reductionism and natural kind determinism are among the topics explored, along with an overview of the history of brain transplantation.
