About the Authors
  • 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.

    • One of the few book-length treatments of developmental science
    • Puts development science back at the forefront of biological inquiry

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Embryology, Epigenesis, and Evolution suggests a target audience of philosophers of science and of biology, but I hope the book will be more widely read. It might start a productive exchange between biologists and philosophers on how to overcome the limitations of our knowledge." Science
