    Freewheeling Centrioles.Jan Sapp - 1998 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 20 (3):255 - 290.
    The century-old controversy over the reproduction and function of the centriole is examined to elucidate the conceptual and methodological issues that have made it so resistant to closure. The study of centrioles is situated in two distinct eras punctuated by the deployment of the electron microscope. From the late 19th century to the mid-20th century, centrioles were defined largely in functional terms- as self-reproducing 'central bodies' playing a directive role in mitosis. During this period, when their structure remained unknown, their (...)

  13. Genesis: The Evolution of Biology.Jan Sapp - 2003 - Oxford University Press USA.
    Genesis: The Evolution of Biology presents a history of the past two centuries of biology, suitable for use in courses, but of interest more broadly to evolutionary biologists, geneticists, and biomedical scientists, as well as general readers interested in the history of science. The book covers the early evolutionary biologists-Lamarck, Cuvier, Darwin and Wallace through Mayr and the neodarwinian synthesis, in much the same way as other histories of evolution have done, bringing in also the social implications, the struggles with (...)

    Transcending Darwinism Thinking Laterally on the Tree of Life.Jan Sapp - 2009 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 31 (2):161 - 181.
    The scope and significance of lateral gene transfer (LGT) has been discussed periodically since the early twentieth century. In sketching this history here we see that the pendulum of opinion has swung from one extreme that LGT is a rare phenomenon to the other that it is fundamental to evolution. That phages are sources of bacterial evolutionary innovation has been discussed since the 1920s in association with evidence that symbiosis is a major source of evolutionary innovation. Concepts of infectious heredity (...)

    Symbiogenesis: The Hidden Face of Constantin Merezhkowsky.Jan Sapp, Francisco Carrapiço & Mikhail Zolotonosov - 2002 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 24 (3/4):413 - 440.
    Constantin Merezhkowsky is celebrated today for his theory of symbiogenesis, postulated in the early decades of the twentieth century, particularly that chloroplasts were symbiotic cyanophytes (cyanobacteria). While biologists point singularly to what they see as his heroic achievement, its neglect and subsequent rediscovery, we introduce a broader and much more complex perspective on his science, his troubled life and career. We present a view of Merezhkowsky as zoologist, anthropologist, botanist, philosopher, and novelist. We explain the genesis of his theory of (...)
