    Empathy’s Purity, Sympathy’s Complexities; De Waal, Darwin and Adam Smith.Cor van der Weele - 2011 - Biology and Philosophy 26 (4):583-593.
    Frans de Waal’s view that empathy is at the basis of morality directly seems to build on Darwin, who considered sympathy as the crucial instinct. Yet when we look closer, their understanding of the central social instinct differs considerably. De Waal sees our deeply ingrained tendency to sympathize (or rather: empathize) with others as the good side of our morally dualistic nature. For Darwin, sympathizing was not the whole story of the workings of sympathy ; the (selfish) need to receive (...)

    “Food Metaphors and Ethics: Towards More Attention for Bodily Experience”. [REVIEW]Cor van der Weele - 2006 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 19 (3):313-324.
    Official Dutch food information apparently tries to avoid images but is implicitly shaped by the metaphor that food is fuel. The image of food as fuel and its accompanying view of the body as a machine are not maximally helpful for integrating two important human desires: health and pleasure. At the basis of the split between health and pleasure is the traditional mind–body dichotomy, in which the body is an important source of evil and bodily pleasure is sinful and dangerous. (...)

    Metaphors and the Privileging of Causes.Cor van der Weele - 1993 - Acta Biotheoretica 41 (4):315-327.
    With regard to the theoretical place of environmental factors in development, three approaches to evolution and development can be distinguished. One is the neo-Darwinist approach in which ‘genetic programs’ are central. The other two present themselves as alternatives to the gene-centrism in present-day biology. I discuss pairwise similarities and differences between the three approaches. Goodwin's approach differs from neo-Darwinism in its favoured types of causes, but shares the internalist perspective on embryological development. The ‘constructionist’ alternative proposes to enlarge the developmental (...)

    Heroes of Agricultural Innovation: Genomics and Metaphoric Plurality.Cor Van Der Weele & Jozef Keulartz - 2009 - Genomics, Society and Policy 5 (3):59-73.
    New technology has a prominent place in the theory and practice of innovation, but the association between high tech and innovation is not inevitable. In this paper, we discuss six metaphorical heroes of agricultural innovation, starting with the dominant hero of frontier science and technology. At first sight, our six heroes can be divided in those who are pro- and those who are anti-technology. Yet in the end technology, and more specifically GM technology, does not emerge as the main issue. (...)
