  1. Réjane Bernier (1986). Self-Organizing Potential and Morphogenetic Potential (Comparing Current Embryological and Atlan's Views). Acta Biotheoretica 35 (3):163-183.
    The concept of self-organizing potential proposed by Atlan, conceived within the framework of information theory', attempts to explain the emergence of the structures and functions of the organism, as well as the concept of morphogenetic potential, conceived in the embryological laboratories. Are the two theses diverging or converging and/or complementary to each other?The paper indicates, first, the context of Atlan's thesis and the meaning of his concepts of self-organization and self-organizing potential in evolutionary systems as well as in individual systems.

  4. Réjane Bernier (1983). Origine Et Rôles de l'Hypothèse En Biologie. Journal for General Philosophy of Science 14 (2):213-233.
    The first aim of this article is to show the necessity of approaching differently the question of the origin of the hypothesis as pertaining to a purely deductive science or to an experimental one, such as biology. The paper also analyzes the rôle played by the hypothesis in: 1) the formation of definitions; 2) the establishment of laws; 3) explanations. It shows that in 1) and 2) the hypothetical character is relevant both to the amplifying induction and to the still (...)
