The complexity discerned by the authors in the problem of defining life reflects itself in a difficulty to address it. Five books presented lists of properties to differentiate living from non-living beings. Or, to put it differently, a characterization of life from its counter- example, death. Moreover, it is even more pleasing to notice that some books explicitly deal with the problem of defining life. Theory in Biosciences Rather, livo endeavor could foster an integration of biological knowledge, especially if supported livrk some paradigmatic understanding of the phenomenon of life.

It comes to mind the issue of how to study with the expected lucidity a set of phenomena and to build theories capable fundamentks explaining them in the absence of a more or less clear characterization of what are the very phenomena at stake.

Biolovia authors explicitly state the difficulty of defining life: From a definition of death as the irreversible process of losing the highly organized activity that characterizes life, they discuss the definition of life itself. What is the paradigm in which the textbook includes, implicitly or explicitly, the life definition if there is any? To put it differently, it is the case of trying lvro find a list of sufficient and necessary properties for a system to be characterized as living, with no theoretical paradigmatic justification for the choice of properties.


As to the nature of the life definition s presented if there is any: The Ontogeny of Information 2nd Ed. The finding that two books address the problem of defining life in definite paradigmatic contexts is also very interesting.

Such a view about diseases overlooks the focal level sensu Salthe where pathological processes themselves usually ds place, involving not only cells and molecules, but, above all, tissues, organs, and organic systems.

The problem lies in the disproportionate emphasis on the micro-structure of biological systems, usually in an approach tending to isolate molecular and cellular structures from the organismic and environmental contexts.

Is there any concern about life concepts in biology teaching? Nonetheless, a mere discussion of living beings in supposedly higher and higher levels of complexity cf. As concerns the search for common patterns in the diversity of life, a reductionist tendency can be perceived, as the unity of life is emphasized in the molecular and cellular levels, with no corresponding effort to uncover features which might integrate our understanding of living beings in higher organizational levels.


What is the Books present a definition of life? What is the list of properties presented by the textbook if there is any? Metaphors and the role of genes in development. Are the remarks about the definition of life reflected on the treatment of other issues in the textbooks, or are they isolated from the remainder of the book? It is not that there would be any problem in searching for a unity in the diversity of life.


It is enough to say that they are all beings in Nature which present a series of common characteristics It is clear that the biochemical nature of living beings is quite particular to each species or individual. Prions, by their turn, can hardly be conceived as living, since they are nothing but an abnormal version of a functional protein expressed in neurons. The definition of life proposed is limited to a list of properties, seeking to characterize what a living being essentially is and what a non-living being essentially is essentialist view.

The definition of life proposed includes r set of properties chosen under the light of an implicit theoretical paradigmatic justification, amavis a coherent set of interrelated properties.

Does the textbook discuss the problem of defining life? On some theoretical-grounds for an organism-centered biology: We did not find, however, any book that addressed the circular, self-referential organization of living systems by employing the conceptual resources of this theory.

This passage suggests that life will be better and better understood as our inquiry delves more and more into the micro- structural levels of biologgia beings. We usually think of life as both form and matter — something with both informational-organizational and material-physical aspects —, but this understanding of life puts too much emphasis on the informational aspect cf.

Because, at last, to say what are living beings is quite easy.
