From Information to Physics to Biology


Commentary to "The gene: An appraisal" by Keith Baverstock Note : this short commentary constructively criticizes the very interesting approach in the paper by an informal survey of the work that a few of us develop since sever al years. I will first survey the very pertinent critique of the Modern Synthesis and the genocentric approach, then hint to a methodological (and theoretical) critique of the approach by Baverstock and others and hint to alternatives paths that are compatible, but "extend" the physics for biology presented by the autho. The purposes and the space allowed force a limited number of references and technical details. These may be found in the references contained in the few papers quoted below that are not the most nor the only representative contributions to the that work, but are inserted as a source of references or as synthetic presentations of our views.
