Abstract

De nombreux organismes sont composés de parties répétées, identiques ou modifiées (segments de vers de terre, vertèbres, etc.). Ce mode d’organisation fait l’objet depuis la fin du XVIIIe siècle, de nombreuses interrogations de la part des biologistes : quelle est sa signification anatomique, comment se met-il en place lors de l’embryogenèse, que peut-on en déduire sur l’évolution des espèces, etc. ? Ce livre retrace l’histoire de ces questionnements, des théories et des concepts qu’ils ont suscités depuis deux siècles. Il montre que ce problème de la répétition des parties n’a cessé d’occuper une position centrale, au carrefour de plusieurs disciplines biologiques, et ce jusqu’à nos jours.

Abstract

Im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes steht das Verhältnis von Naturwissenschaft und Dialektik. Er entwirft eine Skizze der Entwicklung des Naturbegriffs von der Antike bis zur Neuzeit, um den Umbruch in der Auffassung der Natur als Substanz zu der als Funktion aufzuzeigen. So kann das Prinzip naturwissenschaftlicher Erfahrung deutlich gemacht werden. Sie ist keine empiristische Beschreibung, sondern ein Bestimmen von Bewegungen in der Natur durch Messung und Experiment. In beiden verbergen sich epistemologische und damit philosophische Grundlagen. Die Naturwissenschaft selbst denkt ihre Erfahrung in Gestalt spezifischer Dualismen, die die Dialektik als messtheoretische Fassung des als Bewegung daseienden Widerspruchs begreift. Sie führt so das naturwissenschaftlich Getrennte wieder zu einem Ganzen zusammen.

Abstract

Modern information communication technology eradicates barriers of geographic distances, making the world globally interdependent, but this spatial globalization has not eliminated cultural fragmentation. The Two Cultures of C.P. Snow (that of science–technology and that of humanities) are drifting apart even faster than before, and they themselves crumble into increasingly specialized domains. Disintegrated knowledge has become subservient to the competition in technological and economic race leading in the direction chosen not by the reason, intellect, and shared value-based judgement, but rather by the whims of autocratic leaders or fashion controlled by marketers for the purposes of political or economic dominance. If we want to restore the authority of our best available knowledge and democratic values in guiding humanity, first we have to reintegrate scattered domains of human knowledge and values and offer an evolving and diverse vision of common reality unified by sound methodology. This collection of articles responds to the call from the journal Philosophies to build a new, networked world of knowledge with domain specialists from different disciplines interacting and connecting with other knowledge-and-values-producing and knowledge-and-values-consuming communities in an inclusive, extended, contemporary natural–philosophic manner. In this process of synthesis, scientific and philosophical investigations enrich each other—with sciences informing philosophies about the best current knowledge of the world, both natural and human-made—while philosophies scrutinize the ontological, epistemological, and methodological foundations of sciences, providing scientists with questions and conceptual analyses. This is all directed at extending and deepening our existing comprehension of the world, including ourselves, both as humans and as societies, and humankind.
