Agents And Goals In Evolution
de Samir (Professor Of Philosophy Of Science, University Of Bristol) Okasha
Sobre o livro
Samir Okasha offers a critical study of agential thinking in biology, where evolved organisms are seen as agents pursuing a goal. He examines the justification for transposing concepts from rational humans to the biological world, and considers whether agential thinking is mere anthropomorphism or plays a more intellectual role in the science.
