Research Interests

I study the similarity between the concept of the organism in Romantic-era, pre-Darwinian biology and the concept of the organism in current evolutionary-developmental biology. My research focuses primarily on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s notion of the archetypal organism and explores its possible applications within contemporary streams of biology that have rejected the Modern Evolutionary Synthesis as an inadequate theoretical structure for biology.
