Beyond Mechanism: The Emergence and Evolution of Living Agents

We begin with the hypothesis that organisms are agents in the evolutionary process. The focus of the group is to explore how living agents emerged from so-called “inanimate nature” and how they evolved. Sessions will show how the hypothesis solves unsolved problems in the Neo-Darwinian synthesis and advances biological understanding of the natural world.
