François Jacob qui reçut, en 1965, avec Jacques Monod et André Lwoff, le prix Nobel pour ses travaux sur l'hérédité, écrit ce livre qui est bien plus qu'une histoire complète de la biologie. "La Logique du vivant" a surtout l'immense mérite de rendre compréhensibles au profane les ressorts du progrès scientifique qui dépend moins de la découverte technique d'objets nouveaux que des modifications intervenant dans la manière de considérer ces objets. Pour qu'un objet soit accessible à l'analyse, il ne suffit pas, en effet, de l'apercevoir. Il faut encore qu'une théorie soit prête à l'accueillir: c'est elle qui détermine la forme de la question, donc les limites de la réponse que fournit l'expérience. S'interrogeant sur les conditions qui ont permis l'avènement de la biologie moderne et la reformulation radicale, après Darwin, de la théorie mécaniste, Jacob fait donc oeuvre d'épistémologue autant que d'historien
