    Is Cell Science Dangerous?L. Wolpert - 2007 - Journal of Medical Ethics 33 (6):345-348.
    We are essentially a society of cells that come from a single cell, the fertilised egg. Research in cell biology has made major advances that are relevant to medicine and our understanding of life. Our understanding of the role of genes and proteins is impressive. But is this science dangerous? The whole of Western literature has not been kind to cell scientists and is filled with images of scientists meddling with nature, with disastrous results.1 Just consider Shelley’s Frankenstein, Goethe’s Faust (...)

    Depression in an Evolutionary Context.Lewis Wolpert - 2008 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 3:8-.
    Sadness and low levels of depression are adaptive since they lead the individual to try and make up a loss. By contrast, severe or clinical depression is not adaptive, but can be thought of as sadness having become malignant.

    Causal Beliefs Lead to Toolmaking, Which Require Handedness for Motor Control.Lewis Wolpert - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):242-242.
    Toolmaking requires motor skills that in turn require handedness, so that there is no competition between the two sides of the brain. Thus, handedness is not necessarily linked to vocalization but to the origin of causal beliefs required for making complex tools. Language may have evolved from these processes.

    Animal Models in the Light of Evolution provides persuasive evidence that animal models should be used with great caution when applying the results to human diseases. Mice and other model animals are both similar and different, in their biology, to humans.

    The Rejectionist.Lewis Wolpert - 2008 - The Philosophers' Magazine 42 (42):120-126.
    I think philosophers are probably quite jealous of science and this is why they come up with all this nonsense to try to show it’s not as reliable as people like to think it is. Look at how successful science is – philosophy is not successful – it’s achieved nothing.
