In 2013-2014 the Franke Program in Science and the Humanities hosted a lecture series on the “Biology, Individuality, and the Humanities” that explored contemporary interactions between biology, philosophy, and the humanities. These lectures and discussions presented current research that spans traditionally separated fields. One lecture in the Fall and three lectures in the Spring semester focused on contemporary work in evolutionary development biology and the philosophical research on questions of biological information, identity, likeness, and causality. The Franke Program in Science and the Humanities is a new initiative at Yale that aims to foster communication, mutual understanding, collaborative research and teaching among diverse scientific and humanistic disciplines. It is made possible by the generosity of Richard (‘53) and Barbara Franke.
