28 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet homme ne fut ni un prophète isolé ni un précurseur de Darwin auquel on aurait omis de rendre justice. Telle est du moins la thèse soutenue par l'auteur qui montre que Lamarck participa pleinement aux grands débats de son époque sur l'extinction des espèces, la réforme de l'histoire naturelle, la méthode naturelle en taxinomie et les limites épistémologiques des théories sur la Terre

Les rapports entre la science et les langues se sont inscrits, depuis le Moyen Age, entre le constat de l'irréductible multiplicité des langues nationales et l'aspiration à la restauration (ou l'invention) d'une langue universelle. Le dossier présenté ici permet de comprendre dans la longue durée les enjeux épistémologiques et sociaux des choix linguistiques

Storia del pensiero biologico : diversità, evoluzione, ereditarietà by Ernst Mayr( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in Italian and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frutto del lavoro di dieci anni, la "Storia del pensiero biologico" di Ernst Mayr rappresenta il primo tentativo sistematico di esplorare lo sviluppo delle scienze della vita negli ultimi trecento anni, con speciale riferimento alla storia delle dottrine evoluzionistiche, dei sistemi tassonomici e della genetica. Particolarmente importante è la ricostruzione dei dibattiti che portarono alla elaborazione della <<sintesi evoluzionistica>> degli anni trenta e quaranta del Novecento, cui Mayr prese attivamente parte, e di cui divenne uno dei più illustri sostenitori. Anche questa storia, per molti versi, rappresenta un capitolo dell'attività del Mayr scienziato e filosofo. Le polemiche contro l'essenzialismo - per l'autore, eterna bestia nera del pensiero biologico -, contro il finalismo e contro il dominio di una filosofia della scienza a suo avviso permeata dalle priorità della ricerca fisicomatematica, e dunque scarsamente sensibile alle particolari problematiche della scienza dei viventi, sono state cavalli di battaglia della lunga carriera di scienziato di Ernst Mayr, e orientano la trama narrativa della sua "Storia del pensiero biologico"
