Causalidad y la Síntesis extendida: nuevos marcos conceptuales para la biología del siglo XXI

Maximiliano Martínez

Resumo


En este artículo argumento que para la Síntesis extendida resulta imperioso reemplazarlos modelos causales tradicionales en biología, el de causas próximas— últimas y el de lacausalidad lineal ascendente, debido a su incapacidad para capturar la causalidad biológicacompleja que describen la mayoría de áreas de investigación en la actualidad. Estas nuevastendencias muestran la necesidad de reconceptualizar la causalidad y así permitir la construcciónde modelos multinivel que conecten bidireccionalmente diversos niveles de organizacióny diferentes escalas de tiempo. La causalidad multinivel es fundamental en losprocesos de organización natural, por lo que, argumento, la extensión de la síntesis debeubicarla en su base.
