Such a view about diseases overlooks the focal level sensu Salthe where pathological processes themselves usually take place, involving not only cells and molecules, but, above all, tissues, organs, and organic systems. Although most books do not include a chapter or section on the concept of life, it is possible to draw some general ideas about this issue from the texts, through an analysis of how the authors think of biology, the making of science, the scope of the field, the organization of the contents, etc.

The Great Chain of Being. Los conceptos estruturales en el aprendizaje por investigacion. It is desirable, then, dw address this problem in a non-essentialist manner, inasmuch as this is compatible with population thinking.

As to the nature of the life definition s presented if there is any: An emphasis on the description of morphological and anatomical features characterizing groups of plants and animals reinforced the search for lists of essential properties. All the books analyzed put forward some characterization of living beings. Textbooks that characterized living beings by means of a general description of taxonomic groups highlighting the attributes of each group. Nonetheless, what seems strange in the above solution is that it follows necessarily from the attempt to modera lists of necessary and sufficient conditions for life.

When the properties listed are interconnected in the context of some paradigm, the list is no longer, as in the case of essentialist definitions, something like a medical syndrome, a collection of symptoms with no underlying cause. Or, to put it differently, a characterization of life from its counter- example, death.

Teoria Neodarwinismo by Dantefgle Fernandes on Prezi

Essentialist list of properties, allegedly including sufficient and necessary conditions for a system to be living. The books were selected by combining the results of two surveys: As living beings, we have a deep conviction that, in principle, we do know what dx life and no remarkable difficulty should appear when we try to distinguish between a living being and something inanimate, or between the living and the dead states of organisms.


Prions, by their turn, can hardly mlderna conceived as living, since they are nothing but an abnormal version of a functional protein expressed in neurons.

The same is not true of Paulinowho presents a coherent set of interrelated properties, based on a view of the scope of the Biological Sciences as well as of the way the living world is organized, from the simplest to the most complex levels of organization, suggesting the existence of some theoretical justification for their choice; nonetheless, the paradigm at stake is not explicitly stated.

This approach can be verified in the fragmentary way the textbooks deal with the levels of complexity, making it difficult to understand, for instance, that the relations of living beings to each other and to their environment depend on their internal organization.

Given that these molecules rule almost all activities of the cell, the nucleus plays the role of an indirect controller of the cellular metabolism.

Textbooks that based its approach to the definition of life on the biological meaning of death. Help Center Find new research papers in: The gene that codifies the prion protein is in the host itself, so that the prion lacks genetic material and, in fact, cannot do copies of itself in fundamentod same sense as typical living beings do.


This view is reminiscent of one of the most influential ideas in Western thought, that of a scala naturae or Great Chain of Beings Lovejoywhich persists in the views about the evolutionary process emphasizing progress and perfectability.

Rather, it is possible to explain the characteristic coexistence of that list of symptoms of life on the grounds of some set of causes.

Therefore, it should be regarded as a positive aspect that the biology textbooks we examined here, albeit recognizing the difficulties involved in defining life, do not avoid the discussion about how one can characterize living beings, differentiating them from inanimate matter.

The problem lies in the disproportionate emphasis on the micro-structure of biological systems, usually biologla an approach tending to isolate molecular and cellular structures from the organismic and environmental contexts. What is the list of properties presented by the textbook if there is any? It is a vast, modern and intrepid study in which we seek to understand the most intimate nature of each phenomenon that takes place inside a cell, in a fascinating investigation to explain each normal or abnormal process of the organism, justifying the nature of diseases, trying to correct or avoid them, and understanding life itself better.


Nonetheless, essentialist efforts to define life through lists of necessary and sufficient properties still predominate in the analyzed textbooks.

The textbook sections about the origins of life contain important issues concerning life concepts. Only three books dq a specific chapter or section about this issue Figure 2. In these sections, the question of the evolution of processes that would make life possible is raised, e. Skip to main content.

Biooogia would appear when an aggregate of molecules, endowed with the ability to perform ordered chemical reactions, extracting from the environment raw materials and energy, managed to maintain its organization and isolate itself from the environment.

How the problem of defining life has been dealt with?

Therefore, the results reported in this paper should be regarded as partial. Nonetheless, a mere discussion of living beings in supposedly higher and higher levels of complexity cf. Is there any concern about life concepts in biology teaching? All books agreed about the complexity involved in trying to define life, given that some organisms cannot be properly placed in the set of living koderna through certain lists of common characters.

The textbooks call attention to the alleged borderline instances between living systems and inanimate matter, in particular, to viruses, understood as exceptions. Rather, this endeavor could foster an integration of biological knowledge, especially if supported by some paradigmatic understanding of the phenomenon of life. Biology and Philosophy 7: Among several misunderstandings and difficulties resulting from this metaphor, we have the problem that it emphasizes a purely informational conception of life.

An understanding of the organizational patterns observed in living beings indicates how it is important in science and biology teaching to deal with the central, structuring Gagliardi concepts in biological thought, in contrast with the mzrtho tendency of curricula El- Hani, in press[b].

It is clear that the biochemical nature of living beings is quite particular to each species or individual.
