Towards a Theory of Development

Edited by Alessandro Minelli and Thomas Pradeu

  • The first book to offer an in-depth examination of the role of theories and theorization in developmental biology
  • Unites a widely dispersed research literature and integrates a broad range of disparate disciplinary fields ranging from molecular genetics and reproductive biology to evolutionary developmental biology and philosophy of science
  • Creates an agenda for future research and collaboration, providing a significant stepping stone towards the construction of a general theory of development
  • Critical reading for graduate seminars and for everyone interested in the definition and the delineation of development, the concepts of identity and individuality in the living world, and in understanding how organisms are continuously 'constructed' through time
