Biological complexity and integrative pluralism by Sandra D Mitchell( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This integrative pluralism is the best way to understand the different and complex processes - historical and interactive - that generate biological phenomena." "This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the philosophy of science."--Jacket
Unsimple truths : science, complexity, and policy by Sandra D Mitchell( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mitchell draws from diverse fields including psychiatry, social insect biology, and studies of climate change to defend "integrative pluralism" - a theory of scientific practices that makes sense of how many natural and social sciences represent the multi-level, multi-component, dynamic structures they study. She explains how we must, in light of the now-acknowledged complexity and contingency of biological and social systems, revise how we conceptualize the world, how we investigate the world, and how we act in the world. Ultimately Unsimple Truths argues that the very idea of what should count as legitimate science itself should change."--BOOK JACKET

Biological Complexity and Integrative Pluralism (Cambridge studies in philosophy and biology) by Sandra D Mitchell( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This fine collection of essays by a leading philosopher of science presents a defence of integrative pluralism as the best description for the complexity of scientific inquiry today. The tendency of some scientists to unify science by reducing all theories to a few fundamental laws of the most basic particles that populate our universe is ill-suited to the biological sciences, which study multi-component, multi-level, evolved complex systems. This integrative pluralism is the most efficient way to understand the different and complex processes - historical and interactive - that generate biological phenomena. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the philosophy of science
