    The Mechanism of Life.James Johnstone - 1926 - Journal of Philosophical Studies 1 (2):183-191.
    Consider two fairly simple, natural occurrences: a storm at sea and an earthquake. Many descriptions of these things have been made, but what interests us here are their scientific descriptions. In the first case, then, we have to deal with changes in the pressure and temperature of the atmosphere, with violent motions of the air and with waves in the sea. In the second case we deal with stratified rocks that are in a state of severe strain. When this strain (...)

  3. The Philosophy of Biology.James Johnstone - 1914 - Cambridge University Press.
    Originally published in 1914, this book examines several key points of biological science through the lens of philosophy. Johnstone addresses the questions of consciousness, evolution and the activities of the organism, among others, with a special focus on the work of Driesch and Bergson. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the philosophy of science.

    The Conception of Excess-Value in Biology.James Johnstone - 1930 - Philosophy 5 (20):575-.
    By an “organism” I mean a living thing, in the most ordinary sense. There is an “organic theory of nature” in which the term “organism” is extended so as to include atoms, molecules, crystals, colloidal micelles, etc.; such constellations of parts have been called “inorganic organisms” by Driesch. I shall regard them as the “results of organization.” As we know them they are “models” , and they exist in the minds of physicists just as differential equations are in the minds (...)
