Research output: Book/ReportBook

210 Scopus citations


Philosophers of science have tended to avoid the problem of “development” by focusing primarily on evolutionary biology and, more recently, on molecular biology and genetics. Jason Scott Robert explores the nature of development as it relates to current concepts in biological theory and practice and analyzes the interrelations between development and evolution (evo-devo), an area of resurgent biological inquiry.
