Biocomplexity: A pluralist research strategy is necessary for a mechanistic explanation of the "live" state

Philosophical Psychology 15 (4):411 – 440 (2002)
Abstract
The biological sciences study (bio)complex living systems. Research directed at the mechanistic explanation of the "live" state truly requires a pluralist research program, i.e. BioComplexity research. The program should apply multiple intra-level and inter-level theories and methodologies. We substantiate this thesis with analysis of BioComplexity: metabolic and modular control analysis of metabolic pathways, emergence of oscillations, and the analysis of the functioning of glycolysis.
