Beschrijving History and Philosophy of Technoscience: Perspectives on Classification in Synthetic Sciences

This volume launches a new series of contemporary conversations about scientific classification. Most philosophical conversations about kinds have focused centrally or solely on natural kinds, that is, kinds whose existence is not dependent on the scientific process of synthesis. This volume refocuses conversations about classification on un-natural, or synthetic, kinds via extensive study of two paradigm cases of unnatural kinds: in the first place, nanomaterials, and in the second, stem cells and synthetic biology.
