Les coraux de DarwinPremiers modèles de l'évolution et tradition de l'histoire naturelle

Les coraux de Darwin Horst Bredekamp - Les coraux de Darwin
A major contribution, by German philosoph and art historian Horst Bredekamp, to the current debate on the 'tree of life' in evolutionary biology. The essay deals with the aesthetic and political dimension of the coral, in Darwin's system a model of anarchic evolution which opposes the hierarchical metaphor of the tree.
 
Translated from the German by Christian Joschke (original title: Darwins Korallen. Frühe Evolutionsmodelle und die Tradition der Naturgeschichte, Verlag Klaus Wagenbach, 2003).
