Philosophy of Biology


Philosophy of biology is concerned with how biologists come to know about the world, and what it is that they come to know. Such questions are more or less continuous with questions biologists themselves face in practice. So, philosophical debates about such questions often overlap with, and engage, the scientific literature, about, e.g., how to measure and define biodiversity, what counts as a species, or when we have good evidence for a claim about the evolution of this or that lineage.
