Editorial Reviews

Review


"Processes of Life is required reading for biologists and philosophers of biology. It is provocative and original, and the questions that Dupré raises will help shape future reflections on life, its constituents, and its dynamics." --BioScience

John Dupre, University of Exeter and Centre for Genomics in Society

John Dupre is Professor of Philosophy of Science at the University of Exeter and, since 2002, Director of the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society (Egenis). He has formerly held posts at Oxford, Stanford, and Birkbeck College, London. In 2006 he held the Spinoza Visiting Professorship at the University of Amsterdam. He is the President-Elect of the British Society for the Philosophy of Science and a member of the Council of the International Society for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology.

John Dupre has worked on a wide variety of biological issues of interest to philosophy, including the nature of species, organisms, and genes, the implications of evolutionary theory, and lately on genomics and various related areas of molecular biology (epigenetics, microbiology, systems biology and synthetic biology). He has also contributed to philosophical discussions on topics of relevance to science, such as the nature of causation and the status of natural kinds.

I am interested by the use in the intestine of the human body's intestinal flora. This book does a good update on bacterial support of healthful human life.
