Synthesis of Theories through Parametrisation of Laws: II. Example: Neo-Darwinian Synthetic Theory

Erkenntnis 29 (3):357 - 368 (1988)
Abstract
The paper presents an example of unified theory bearing interest from both a historical and systematic point of view. The example is chosen from evolutionary population genetics (neo-Darwinian synthetic theory). It exhibits various aspects of theoretical change in science that have been shown in Part I (Geiger, 1988) to be characteristic of syntheses of theories.
