Images of Development: Environmental Causes in Ontogeny

Front Cover
SUNY Press, Jan 7, 1999 - Philosophy - 182 pages
0 Reviews
Images of Development questions the dominant biological approach of explaining animal development as entirely genetic by exploring the explanatory value of investigating environmental influences. Van der Weele discusses assumptions, explanatory patterns, and conceptual tools in developmental and evolutionary biology and reviews many concrete examples of environmental influence in animal development. She provides perspectives from biology, philosophy of science, and ethics in an integrative way.
