Why Basic concepts in Biology should be reframed Is Etymology a useful tool for investigation in biology?
AbstractHow do the words drive scientific investigation and the way we construct models? Here we want to sketch briefly how some biological concepts have changed over time, but that did not happen to the words we use to recognize them. Are we aware of the meaning of concepts we actually use as conceptual “tools” that shape our thoughts and experimental models? We want to investigate how this shift can affect the way science works, and how should etymology impact on the theoretical biology.
