      Theory has long been celebrated in the physical sciences, but the situation is very different in the life sciences. As Conrad Hal Waddington wrote in , in the preface of Towards a Theoretical Biology: ‘Theoretical Physics is a well-recognized discipline, and there are Departments and Professorships devoted to the subject in many Cited by: Your Paper Your Way We now differentiate between the requirements for new and revised submissions.

    While theoretical physics is both respectable and a major part of the activities of the physicists, theoretical biology is a minor part of modern biology. Much of that science of biology accepted the diversity that appeared to inhabit the biosphere: organisms were classified and compared, and their behavior was studied in the sense of.   We were embedded then within theoretical biology. At the time, after general systems theory [9], [10] had come and gone, theoretical biology was in a mild resurgence in acceptance. The series of books entitled “Towards a Theoretical Biology”, edited by Waddington [11] (reprints of which are underway), had appeared a few years earlier.

    Vienna Series in Theoretical Biology The Vienna Series is inspired by the evolutionary and theoretical biology research sponsored by the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI), an international center for advanced study closely associated with the University of Vienna.

We will teach you how to read mathematical models, and how to analyze them, with the ultimate aim that you can critically judge the assumptions and the contributions of such models whenever you encounter them in your future biological research.

The author examines the contingent and convergent theories within evolutionary science and establishes a synthesis to project this argument on the question of cognitive evolution on a cosmic scale; and on the idea of "universal" laws in the science of biology.

This book was a fascinating read, and while not hyperbolic in its assertions nevertheless inspired many a flight of fancy in this reader's mind.5/5(1).

This beautifully crafted book collects images, which were created during the process of research in all fields of theoretical biology. Data analysis, numerical treatment of a model, or simulation results yield stunning images, which represent pieces of art just by themselves.
