The Extended Evolutionary Synthesis: Philosophical and Historical Dimensions
Ruhr University Bochum, 21st – 22nd March 2019

This workshop will bring together scholars from history and philosophy of biology as well as biologists who have worked on the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis (including fields such as epigenetics, niche construction theory, and evo-devo) from biotheoretical, philosophical, and historical perspectives. A particular focus of the workshop will be laid on the past and present conceptual, explanatory, and methodological challenges evolutionary theory faces.
