Michel Morange (ENS Paris & UPMC), What does a ‘global history’ of biology bring to us?

7 June 2016 | 12 h 30 min - 13 h 30 min

Michel Morange (Centre Cavaillès, ENS Paris & UPMC).

What does a ‘global history’ of biology bring to us?

  • Video of the talk: Video Morange
  • Abstract:
    To write a global history of life sciences from Antiquity to extant research, from molecular biology to ecology and ethology is an impossible task, the promise to be inaccurate and wrong in many issues.
    Nevertheless, the result is not without interest. It casts a new light on continuities and discontinuities in biological thought, and on the relations between biology and other scientific disciplines. It reveals the circulation of concepts and methods between biological subdisciplines, and between Society and biology. It shows the complex dynamics of biological transformations that gives biology its specific nature.
