This quantity explores questions about conceptual swap from either clinical and philosophical viewpoints by way of reading the new historical past of evolutionary developmental biology. It beneficial properties revised papers that originated from the workshop "Conceptual switch in organic technology: Evolutionary Developmental Biology, 1981-2011" held on the Max Planck Institute for the historical past of technology in Berlin in July 2010. The Preface has been written via Ron Amundson.

In those papers, philosophers and biologists evaluate and distinction key ideas in evolutionary developmental biology and their improvement because the unique, seminal Dahlem convention on evolution and improvement held in Berlin in 1981. the various unique medical members from the 1981 convention also are members to this new quantity and, at the side of different professional biologists and philosophers specializing on those subject matters, supply an authoritative, entire view at the subject.

Taken jointly, the papers offer novel views on how and why the conceptual panorama has shifted and stabilized particularly methods, yielding insights into the dynamic epistemic adjustments that experience happened during the last 3 a long time. This quantity will entice philosophers of biology learning conceptual switch, evolutionary developmental biologists interested by comprehending the genesis in their box and comparing its destiny instructions, and historians of biology studying this era whilst the intersection of ev

olution and improvement rose back to prominence in organic science.
