I am a philosopher of biology concerned with the emerging ways that epigenetic processes are being conceptualized in evolutionary theory. My research explores how these changes complicate basic and well-entrenched distinctions in biology, and how they introduce a serious dilemma at the heart of evolutionary theory. Attempting to resolve this dilemma helps to explain the enduring controversy surrounding epigenetics, specifically in that it necessitates a choice between two supposedly objectionable premises.
