Item description for Foundations of Biophilosophy by Martin Mahner & Mario Augusto Bunge...

Over the past three decades, the philosophy of biology has emerged from the shadow of the philosophy of physics to become a respectable and thriving philosophical subdiscipline. The authors take a fresh look at the life sciences and the philosophy of biology from a strictly realist and emergentist-naturalist perspective. They outline a unified and science-oriented philosophical framework that enables the clarification of many foundational and philosophical issues in biology. This book will be of interest both to life scientists and philosophers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations of Biophilosophy?

An Influential Work by a Great Philosopher  May 1, 2006
Mario Bunge is the Philosopher of choice for reflective scientists.
terrible  Oct 11, 2004

To be fair, perhaps we should add to the previous review the famous biologist G.M.Smith's appreciation of this book: "Everything contained herein is WRONG".
A lucid, critical and constructive synthesis and reference.  Mar 10, 1999
I am a colleague of the authors' and have used the book in my own work. This book will be welcome to all who appreciate the great achievements of modern biological thought and practice, right along with the conceptual inadequacies and confusions that plague the field. The following are excerpts from various professional reviews:

"The authors have set the standards of biophilosophy" (Eörs Szathmáry, in Trends in Ecology & Evolution).

"Those who have no problems or see none do not need this book. But those who look for help in the partially inconclusive debates over meaning and truth, have much to gain by it" (Gerhard Vollmer, Naturwissenschaften).
