Departament of the Philosophy of Biology


Characterization of research problems


At the Departament of Philosophy of Biology we conduct the researches in the area of philosophy of systems, which treat the object of investigation in categories of integrated systems. As the basis of investigations of complex problems, we use analysis and system approach, which is the most relevant way of entirely interpretation of life and its origin. The special attention is paid to the following problems:

  • biosystemogenesis,
  • the concept of electromagnetic nature of life,
  • bioelectromagnetic aspects of abiogenesis and evolution,
  • philosophical aspects of protobiology, exobiology and astrobiology,
  • water as an environment of life processes,
  • artificial life towards to biogenesis and biosystems evolution.

For all these issues, it's used among others hypothetical-deductive method.
