"The paradox of the organism is that it is not torn apart by its conflicting replicators but stays together and works as a purposeful entity, apparently on behalf of all of them. Not only is it not torn apart; it functions as such a convincingly unified whole that biologists in general have not seen that there is a paradox at all!"
We invite you to join us for this 2-day conference devoted to the concept of organismality and the study of internal conflicts. We hope to attract biologists and philosophers with shared interests in these topics.
A limited number of slots are available for contributed talks, and we will also have a poster session. All attendees must register for the conference (deadline October 15, 2022), and those interested in giving a talk or a poster can submit an abstract at registration by the September 1, 2022 deadline.
