12.9: “哲学会饮”午餐会第三期

 

哲学会饮是主要针对本系的老师和同学举办的两周一次的讨论会(非北大威尼斯欢乐娱人城APP的同学和老师也欢迎参加):其主旨在于创建一个系里老师和同学之间定期交流其正在关注的哲学问题的平台。每次报告将由报告者提出一到两个其近期关注的哲学问题(一般来源于报告者正在创作的文章),然后听众将自由提问或者给出建议,旨在帮助报告者更好地阐释其关注的问题,规避可能的错误。

活动将提供午餐和咖啡。欢迎前来参与我们的活动!

摘要:

Abstract: According to modern biology, a biological trait or phenotype is produced by the interaction between genes and the environment. However, the intuition of genetic determinism (that genes determine phenotypes) is still lingering. My talk will defend a moderate version of genetic determinism by analyzing the gene concept in terms of information. There are two distinct meanings of information, namely, correlational information and semantic information. From a purely developmental perspective, a gene carries correlational information about the phenotype such that the genes do not have a fundamentally unique role compared to environmental factors. While from the evolutionary perspective, a gene carries teleosemantic information encoded by natural selection in the past such that it currently presupposes a corresponding phenotype. This presupposition relation underlies our intuition that genes, in a weak sense, 'determine' the phenotype.
