The last Research Forum of the semester!
The last Philosophy Research Forum of the semester will be held this Tuesday, January 18. Nathalie Gontier will give a talk on "Studying symbolic evolution: an epistemological analysis". She demonstrates that traditional evolutionary epistemology and biosemiotics bring in a mesoevolutionary outlook by drawing on early Darwinism and evo-devo movements that emphasize the role of the organism in evolution. Communication studies instead originally take on a microevolutionary perspective by investigating how units of information are transmitted across generations through time. Only later do they integrate studies on meaning-making at the organismal level.
The talk will take place online. More information is available here: https://elearning.uni-bayreuth.de/course/view.php?id=31265
