Episode 3 - Alan C. Love

This week, American philosopher of biology Alan C. Love joins Samara to talk about the role of purpose in biology. Biologists must be able to discuss how an organism knows how to grow, or perform certain behaviours, without anthropomorphising them. It is a fine line to walk! He also touches on the role of philosophers in biology as they work to improve communication and collaboration between departments.
