What kind of models?

for example, 2 models from Ancient Greece: Is the body made of… indivisible subunits or an endlessly divisible fluid

 

 

 

 

Models of the body are perspective/technique dependent Look at it this way (cell membranes): the body is made of cells Look at it that way (organelles): the body is an endlessly divisible fluid

Models are perspective/technique dependent Look at it this way (cell membranes): the body is made of cells Look at it that way (organelles): the body is an endlessly divisible fluid Yet another way (the genome): … overlapping spatial/temporal fields of molecular organization

“ There’s no such thing as a central dogma into which everything will fit...any mechanism you can think of, you will find -- even if it is the most bizarre kind of thinking. “ Anything... “ So if the material tells you, ‘It may be this,’ allow that. Don’t turn it aside and call it an exception, an aberration, a contaminant. “ So many good clues have been lost that way.“ “ A Feeling for the Organism” Evelyn Fox Keller, 1983 Nobel-laureate Barbara McClintock:
