11 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium was launched in the early eighties. It began during a particularly lean period in the American economy. But its success is linked as much to the need to be in touch with the rapidly changing currents of the philosophical climate as with the need to insure an adequately stocked professional community in the Philadelphia area faced, perhaps permanently, with the threat of increasing attrition. The member schools of the Consortium now include Bryn Mawr College, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, and Villanova University, that is, the schools of the area that offer advanced degrees in philosophy. The philosophy faculties of these schools form the core of the Consortium, which offers graduate students the instructional and library facilities of each member school. The Consortium is also supported by the associated faculties of other regional schools that do not offer advanced degrees - notably, those at Drexel University, Haverford College, La Salle University, and Swarthmore College - both philosophers and members of other departments as well as interested and professionally qualified persons from the entire region. The affiliated and core professionals now number several hundreds, and the Consortium's various ventures have been received most enthusiastically by the academic community. At this moment, the Consortium is planning its fifth year of what it calls the Conferences on the Philosophy of the Human Studies
The epistemology of development, evolution, and genetics : selected essays by Richard M Burian( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collected for the first time in a single volume are essays that examine the developments in three fundamental biological disciplines - embryology, evolutionary biology, and genetics - which were in conflict for much of the twentieth century. The essays in this collection examine key methodological problems within these disciplines and the difficulties faced in overcoming the conflicts between them." "Written in a clear, accessible style, this collection should appeal to students and professionals in the philosophy of science and the philosophy and history of biology."--Jacket
