Even though this idea has been criticized in several works about the nature of evolution, it remains in biology textbooks, even in higher education. Environmental Causes in Ontogeny.

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? The definition of life proposed is limited to a list of properties, seeking to characterize what a living being viologia is and what a non-living being essentially is essentialist view. It is also interesting to examine the difficulties that follow from the classification of viruses as living beings.

From the 8 books analyzed, 5 presented a definition of life. Emmeche observes that definitions of life are seldom discussed in depth bioloia even mentioned in biology textbooks and dictionaries. This passage is found in moverna chapter about the definitions of Biology and life, and is explicit about the difficulties resulting from an essentialist view of definitions.

What is the list of properties presented by the textbook if there is any?

We notice you are using an outdated version of Internet Explorer.

Help Center Find new research papers in: 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. Life concept explicitly situated in a biological paradigm. Moreover, it is even more pleasing to notice that some books explicitly deal with the problem of defining life.

What is the paradigm in which the textbook includes, implicitly or explicitly, the life definition if there is any? Does the textbook somehow discuss some characterization of living beings?

The textbooks call attention to the alleged borderline instances between living systems and inanimate matter, in particular, to viruses, understood as exceptions. We emphasized how the search for similar features in biological processes and common patterns in the diversity of living beings, which is an inevitable part of any attempt to define life, makes a more integrated approach to biological knowledge possible.



On some theoretical-grounds for an organism-centered biology: The Role of the Genome in Development and Evolution. Viruses and other molecular structures showing distinctive properties of both inanimate matter and living beings seem to be exceptional because they contradict our intuitions about the distinction between these two classes of entities.

Biologia Molecular, Citologia e Histologia. All livrp books analyzed put forward some characterization of living beings.

The Great Chain of Being. Log In Sign Up. Here, it is worth observing that Soares Remember me on this computer. A response to Gifford. 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 fundamenhos their choice; nonetheless, the paradigm at stake is not explicitly stated.

Fundamentos de Bioloiga Moderna 2nd ed. One book based its approach to the definition of life on the fhndamentos meaning of death, as the inevitable antithesis of life Figure 2. Rather, this endeavor could foster an integration of biological knowledge, especially if supported by some paradigmatic understanding of the phenomenon of life.

It is not that there would be any problem in searching for a unity in the diversity of life. As living beings, we have a deep conviction that, in principle, we do know what is 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 tundamentos states of organisms. At last, all living beings are subjected to death.

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 lifro evolutionary process emphasizing progress and perfectability. It is important to stress, however, that the claim that the Earth is living strains the ordinary concept of life Bedauand demands a justification through a proper conceptual analysis.

Only three books include ,artho specific chapter or section about this issue Figure 2.

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. To cast them aside as exceptions seems to be, at first, quite a natural and easy solution. 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.


The idea that a discussion of life concepts might contribute to biology teaching incited us to pursue new research questions: It can be compared with the memory of a computer and stores thousands of instructions to make cellular proteins.

As to the nature of the life definition s presented if modrrna is any: The finding that two books address the problem of defining life in definite paradigmatic contexts is also very interesting. Los conceptos estruturales en el aprendizaje por investigacion.

It is clear that the biochemical nature of living beings is quite particular to each species or individual. To put it differently, it is the case of trying to find a list of sufficient and necessary properties for a system to be characterized as living, with biollogia theoretical paradigmatic justification for the choice of properties. Does the textbook 2: Nonetheless, essentialist efforts to define life through lists of necessary and sufficient properties still predominate in the analyzed textbooks.

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.

But a thoughtful analysis can suggest that this solution is not so adequate. The prion protein simply catalyzes the very chemical reaction that results in itself. This argument is not sufficient, however, for avoiding a violation of the Cell Theory by viruses, as this theory states that the cell is the basic structural unit of all living beings, and this does not hold in the case of viruses, no matter whether they are strictly dependent xmabis cells or not. It is enough to say that they are all beings in Nature which present a series of common characteristics Five books presented lists of properties to differentiate living from non-living beings.

Surely, it may exist, and maybe even necessarily exists, borderline instances between living beings and non-living matter. It fundamenos the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the pathological process with the pathological phenomenon itself.
