Upcoming events

  • Workshop July 5-6 2022:"The Descent of Man, in memory of Jean Gayon" (Paris)

  • Symposium August 15-17 2022: "The Legitimacy of Generalising Darwinism" (Berlin)

  • Conference in March 2023: "Price Equation and Generalised Evolution" (Hannover)


We’re a group of philosophers and scientists dedicated to reflecting about the explanatory strengths and fundamental limits of Darwinism in all its shapes and forms. Some main questions:

  • What are the core concepts of evolutionary theory?

  • How they are formalized in mathematical theories?

  • How can they be applied to other sciences (anthropology, economics, psychology) and humanities (history, linguistics)?

  • What implications does Darwinism have for traditional areas of philosophy — philosophy of action, epistemology, ethics, politics? 


We believe this to be important because evolutionary theory continues to be misunderstood in the public sphere.
