Denis Noble ¾ 6 review review Dance to the Tune of Life: Biological Relativity ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Biology he shows that what emerges is a deeply humane picture of the role of the organism in constraining its chemistry including its genes to serve the organism as a whole especially in the interaction with its social environment This humanistic holistic approach challenges the common gene centred view held by many in modern biology and cultu. Just as modern astronomy has shown us there is no definite center of the universe and it is most certainly not the earth in this book Denis Noble shows that in biology there is no starting point of the organism And it is most certainly not the gene Denis Noble is the man who worked out the details of the cardiac rhythm which made pacemakers possible as well as the drug ivabradine He received the distinction Commander of the British Empire from the ueen of England for his service to the sciences His heart research involved knocking out genes and altering gene expression This work convinced him that the Neo Darwinian conception of the gene and its role was deeply flawedThe book begins with a history of astronomy where ideas that the earth is not the center and not even our sun or galaxy are at the center were met with great resistance He makes the case that making the gene the immortal center of evolutionary biology is at least as great a mistake as earth centric astronomy It has negatively impacted fields as diverse as economics theology sociology politics and literatureNoble is a strong historian and his book uncovers the detailed history of the language and development of the ideas behind modern evolutionary theoryHe says Neo Darwinism is a product of nineteenth century scientific thought in the last decades before the revolutions in physics leading to uantum mechanics and relativity theory Since Neo Darwinism has dominated biological science for over half a century its viewpoint is now so embedded in the scientific literature including standard school and university textbooks that many biological scientists may themselves not recognise its conceptual nature let alone uestion incoherencies or identify flaws the language of Neo Darwinism is itself a powerful barrier to the development of a inclusive theory it is the whole conceptual scheme of Neo Darwinism that creates the difficulty Each concept and metaphor reinforces the overall mind set until it is almost impossible to stand outside it and to appreciate how beguiling it isHe shows how the entire field has become a prisoner of its own circular reasoning and of an unjustified antagonism towards teleology or purpose in nature He explains how it is manifestly impossible to understand something like a heart if you will not acknowledge that it exists for the purpose of pumping blood and doing so in a very particular mannerHe shows that you can only understand the behavior of a heart at a certain level of the system and that at other levels of the system the same behavior may appear random or invisible or incomprehensible He shows that biology is systems within systems within systems and that every system has a relationship to other systems He shows that you cannot pinpoint any particular starting or ending point to a living organism Each effect flows from multiple causes and each cause produces multiple effectsThis reminds me of a statement made by Gary Fugle an author and biologist who said there is no single place in nature where you can say Aha THERE is the hand of God you can see it right there Although people who espouse God of gaps arguments take comfort in such things those gaps have a way of migrating elsewhere in the face of growing scientific knowledge Noble is making a complementary statement but aimed at scientific reductionists instead There is no one all encompassing explanatory simplistic Final Answer In Nature that says this is the spot where everything starts Rather says Noble goals are contextual and just like randomness only have meaning with respect to something else He says It is in this context that we can understand why many prominent Neo Darwinists are also prominent atheists That also is a statement of faith Part of that statement of faith is that creative purpose consciousness and intentionality are all mirages epiphenomena without significance or effect Thus his argument for Biological Relativity Every system every goal and behavior is relative to others around it both smaller and larger scales and levels of systems This book will be liked by anyone who creates for a living and instinctively knows that nothing in nature is as simplistic as Dawkins just so explanations and storiesHe rigorously demonstrates new models of evolution via the work of several researchers including Conrad Waddington In direct defiance to Neo Darwinism learned traits are inherited and Lamarck was right 200 years ago organisms direct the evolution of their progeny Noble spends some time describing the evolutionary toolbox of Horizontal Gene Transfer Epigenetics Symbiogenesis and Transposition He shows that many evolutionary events are grand movements of large scale sections of DNAHe gives Neo Darwinism credit for a number of fields of study such as population genetics but also shows how it has slowed discovery in other fields for 50 years He blames some of this on the ever narrowing scope of scientific categories fragmentation of disciplines increasingly unable to see the whole for the partsSome memorable uotes I saw a film of a living unicellular organism an amoeba It could hardly have been different from the two dimensional sections of dead cells that I had drawn as a student Nothing stood still Everything was streaming this way and that as the organism moved around When it found an object that was sensed I assumed chemically to be food the movements became beautifully co ordinated as two extrusions called pseudopodia false feet encircled the object eventually allowing it to be taken in as a membrane coated vesicle to be digested This tiny organism had a nose the chemical receptors on its membrane surface It had muscles in fact formed of protein molecules some of them very similar to those in our cells only not organised into separate muscular organs It clearly had a nervous system to connect the two together although it had no nerves as we know them It had a clear goal to feed itself As we will see later when we discuss the cell cycle it knows when and how to reproduce itself in an intricately co ordinated activity when it makes its genes dance as they and their predecessors have done for at least one billion years Those working on a systems approach were openly denigrated as not doing real science not being where it is at Later in the 1970s when I became a member of research grant committees I was to hear that phrase often Being where it is at was committee speak for excluding any other approach Sadly that exclusion was so successful that very little integrative research remained Molecular biology and genomics sucked up most of the funding Neo Darwinism is incomplete as a theory of evolution It also suffers from deep conceptual confusions and is not compatible with the wider range of experimental evidence we now have Why are scientists like me apparently in such a small minority There is a simple answer to that uestion We are only apparently a minority I have discussed extensively with evolutionary and other biologists in the course of lecturing to audiences large and small all around the world Exceedingly few of the tens of thousands involved have seriously defended the orthodox Neo Darwinist view as a complete explanation On the benefits of updating our evolutionary models Whole areas of economics sociology and philosophy are based on interpretations of selfish gene viewpoints No field of human endeavour will remain untouched since the implications affect even our concept of humanity This field of Extended Evolutionary Synthesis is growing rapidly and it s great that a person of Noble s stature has taken the time to write such a careful book Just as Neo Darwinism has leaked poison into many fields Biological Relativity has the potential for bringing new insights into economics sociology and many other disciplines Noble is mature enough and well enough read to speak to these other disciplinesNoble is no stranger to this debate He has every ualification necessary to critiue evolutionary biology from the outside Noble organized the first debate about Richard Dawkins bestseller The Selfish Gene in 1976 and again between Dawkins and Lynn Margulis in 2009 He was on Dawkins PhD review committee at Oxford He s an Emeritus professor at the University of OxfordHe s a Fellow of the Royal Society the oldest scientific body in the world He organized the Royal Society s November 2016 Conference New Trends in Evolutionary Biology and chaired the 2nd day of the conferenceAt the London conference the overwhelming consensus from both presenters the 300 in attendance was that Neo Darwinism is due for a major upgrade and perhaps needs to be replaced entirelyHe s written over 500 scientific papers and he s President of the International Union of Physological Sciences the global umbrella organization for physiology His keynote talks to physiologists worldwide regularly include critiues of Neo Darwinism and he often hears complaints from members that the evolutionary biology cliue refuses to publish their papersHe s one of the pioneers of the field of Systems Biology and he is also editor of the Royal Society s cross disciplinary publication Interface Focus The book is very readable it s in middle school to high school level English and the glossary and explanations take pains to explain complex ideas in simple languageIt is part of a growing body of works that provide alternatives to the classical textbook version of evolution that is repeated ad nauseum in the media Other books include Evolution A View from the 21st Century by James Shapiro COSMOSAPIENS by John Hands The Music of Life also by Denis Noble and Acuiring Genomes by Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan
