On the Intractable ontology of Species

On the Intractable ontology of Species

‘Species’ is a tricky, but unavoidable term which makes biologists disagree with each other in their attempts to define it. The disagreement actually stems from the intractable ontological nature of species. Not only biologists but also philosophers are engaged in the endeavour to understand species. The former attempt to define species while the latter try to determine its ontology. As a result, antinomies such as monism/pluralism or realism/antirealism come into the picture.

A new study published in the Vol 5 No 3 and 4 (2017): Issue-September and December of SOCRATES sketch out the intractable nature of species through a historical account of the species problem. Through this paper, the authors, Gopalakrishnan Alikkal Hareesh, PhD Research Scholar, Indian Institute of Technology Indore, India and C Upendra Associate Professor – Philosophy Indian Institute of Technology Indore, India, have tried to decipher a ‘common thread’ that, perhaps, binds all our ideas of species together.
