El mecanismo evolutivo de Margulis y los niveles de selección

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Margulis’ evolutionary theory entails a revision of certain core concepts of traditional biology. One of these changes is related to the hot debate about units of selection. This paper considers Margulis’ proposal as a new research tradition (RT) and evaluates its consequences to the mentioned issue. Three ideas are suggested here: firstly, that her theory represents the revision of many classical biological concepts; secondly, that her position implies a reappraisal of many traditional issues in philosophy of biology; and thirdly, that studying it from Lakatos and Laudan’s ideas about RT allows us to enlighten the richness of her theory.
