Thinking about Biology by Webster, Stephen
Cambridge University Press | 01 January 2003
Paperback | 235 pages
Thinking About Biology is a philosophical commentary on biology, intended for biology students. It aims to make science students' studies more interesting, by offering an easy way into the philosophy of science, and into debates about the social and political implications of biology. In the past, books about these contexts tended to be academic science studies books, or popular science books. Thinking About Biology is unique in that it is a biology textbook, with clear links to the biology curriculum, but which adopts an explicitly philosophical approach.
