More Thinking about Biology

In case you missed it, Chris kicked off a discussion of cognitive factors that get in the way of thinking about evolution. Brandon followed with a series of posts calling for a more critical reading of the history of essentialisms in biology. The latest installment, Intuitive Essentialisms IV includes a recap with links to the previous arguments. Meanwhile, Gary returned to the question of Deleuzean vitalism in a series of posts: Vitalism Junked, Mapping the Way We Understand Life, and Deleuze: A Non-Essentialist Vitalism? Fullstop.

And cited by Anne Galloway of Space and Culture fame. The local university library has a A Shock to Thought. I'll have to check it out.
