Product Description

Review

[a] splendid book ... The complementary perspectives of the editors helped to bring together an exceptional team of contributors that includes both biologists and philosophers. ... this book should be required reading for philosophers and biologists interested in development or evolutionary developmental biology (Kostas Kampourakis, Metascience)

This is a very welcome volume that raises, and addresses, a number of important questions about how we understand development ... and is worth reading carefully. It raises questions that deserve further consideration, and should stimulate further discussion that will enrich developmental biology, philosophy of science, and will benefit from conversation with history of science as well (Jane Maienschein, History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences)

This book will be essential reading for readers wanting a rich introduction to current broad issues in developmental biology and evo-devo, for philosophers of science in general, and for biologists at large. Exceptional for an edited volume, each chapter in Towards a Theory of Development is deeply thoughtful, provoking reflection on some of the most important ideas in current biology. I can think of no higher recommendation (Mark E. Olson, Evolution & Development)

Towards a Theory of Development gathers essays by biologists and philosophers, which display a diversity of theoretical perspectives. The discussions not only cover the state of art, but broaden our vision of what development includes and provide pointers for future research...highly recommended reading for everyone interested in developmental biology. (Ingo Brigandt, University of Alberta)

About the Author

Alessandro Minelli was Professor of Zoology at the University of Padova, Italy, until his retirement in 2011. Following long years of research in biological systematics and phylogenetics, he later moved the focus of his activity towards evolutionary developmental biology. Founding member and former vice-president of the European Society of Evolutionary Biology, Minelli is member of the editorial board of Evolution & Development, Theory in Biosciences and Frontiers in Zoology. Thomas Pradeu is Associate Professor in Philosophy of Science at Paris-Sorbonne University. Trained in both philosophy and biology, he is particularly interested in conceptual and theoretical issues of immunology and developmental biology. His research has been published in scientific and philosophical journals, including Biological Theory, Biology and Philosophy, The Lancet, Nature Reviews Immunology, and The Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the USA.
