Darwinismo e naturalismo

Resumo da conferência de Bruentrup Godehard no Congresso sobre o Impacto de Darwin

Darwinism and Naturalism - a Perfect Fit?

In this talk I argue that a non-materialist metaphysics can give an equal or better account of evolution than Neo-Darwinism plus materialist naturalism. The talk uses the tools of contemporary analytic metaphysics to advance a view of nature that - while being historically inspired by Whiteheadian process metaphysics - also tries to present a philosophical research program that takes account of some recent developments in evolutionary biology.
