Explanatory symmetries, preformation, and developmental systems theory

Philosophy of Science 67 (3):331 (2000)
Abstract
Some central ideas associated with developmental systems theory (DST) are outlined for non-specialists. These ideas concern the nature of biological development, the alleged distinction between "genetic" and "environmental" traits, the relations between organism and environment, and evolutionary processes. I also discuss some criticisms of the DST approach
