The next philosophy of biology reading group will be Tuesday February 19. We meet at 7:35 p.m. in the the West Duke building on East campus.
Our next reading group paper will be Alan Grafen’s “The Formal Darwinism a Mid-Term Report.” This is a mostly nontechnical sketch of an ongoing project. Formal Darwinism promises to be a hot area in the next few years, so it would be good for us to become familiar with it. now If you have the inclination and technical ability, I recommend going to his website to check out his other papers. Some are fairly short.
Finally, a philosopher of biology will be giving a talk next Friday, February 22. Matt Haber, from the University of Utah, is a good friend and a sharp mind. His talk promises to be interesting and insightful.
