  2. Jean-Luc Nancy: A Negative Politics?Andreas Wagner - 2006 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 32 (1):89-109.
    Taking his critique of totalitarianizing conceptions of community as a starting point, this text examines Jean-Luc Nancy's work of an ‘ontology of plural singular being’ for its political implications. It argues that while at first this ontology seems to advocate a negative or an anti-politics only, it can also be read as a ‘theory of communicative praxis’ that suggests a certain ethos – in the form of a certain use of symbols that would render the ontological plurality of singulars perceptible (...)

    Engineering and Biology: Counsel for a Continued Relationship.Brett Calcott, Arnon Levy, Mark L. Siegal, Orkun S. Soyer & Andreas Wagner - 2015 - Biological Theory 10 (1):50-59.
    Biologists frequently draw on ideas and terminology from engineering. Evolutionary systems biology—with its circuits, switches, and signal processing—is no exception. In parallel with the frequent links drawn between biology and engineering, there is ongoing criticism against this cross-fertilization, using the argument that over-simplistic metaphors from engineering are likely to mislead us as engineering is fundamentally different from biology. In this article, we clarify and reconfigure the link between biology and engineering, presenting it in a more favorable light. We do so (...)

    The Role of Randomness in Darwinian Evolution.Andreas Wagner - 2012 - Philosophy of Science 79 (1):95-119.
    Historically, one of the most controversial aspects of Darwinian evolution has been the prominent role that randomness and random change play in it. Most biologists agree that mutations in DNA have random effects on fitness. However, fitness is a highly simplified scalar representation of an enormously complex phenotype. Challenges to Darwinian thinking have focused on such complex phenotypes. Whether mutations affect such complex phenotypes randomly is ill understood. Here I discuss three very different classes of well-studied molecular phenotypes in which (...)

  5. Causality in Complex Systems.Andreas Wagner - 1999 - Biology and Philosophy 14 (1):83-101.
    Systems involving many interacting variables are at the heart of the natural and social sciences. Causal language is pervasive in the analysis of such systems, especially when insight into their behavior is translated into policy decisions. This is exemplified by economics, but to an increasing extent also by biology, due to the advent of sophisticated tools to identify the genetic basis of many diseases. It is argued here that a regularity notion of causality can only be meaningfully defined for systems (...)

    This article examines a series of Schelling-like models of residential segregation, in which agents prefer to be in the minority. We demonstrate that as long as agents care about the characteristics of their wider community, they tend to end up in a segregated state. We then investigate the process that causes this and conclude that the result hinges on the similarity of informational states among agents of the same type. This is quite different from Schelling-like behavior and suggests that segregation (...)

    Francisco de Vitoria and Alberico Gentili on the Legal Character of the Global Commonwealth.Andreas Wagner - 2011 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 31 (3):565-582.
    In discussing the works of 16th-century theorists Francisco de Vitoria and Alberico Gentili, this article examines how two different conceptions of a global legal community affect the legal character of the international order and the obligatory force of international law. For Vitoria the legal bindingness of ius gentium necessarily presupposes an integrated character of the global commonwealth that leads him to as it were ascribe legal personality to the global community as a whole. But then its legal status and its (...)

    Die Unfähigkeit des Menschen zur Vervollkommnung als anthropologische Grundkategorie von Nicht-P in Gen 6-8.Andreas Wagner - 2021 - Paragrana: Internationale Zeitschrift für Historische Anthropologie 30 (1):137-149.
    Es scheint mir fruchtbar, bestimmte theologisch-anthropologische Grundkonzeption des Alten Testaments im Rahmen des Imperfektibilitäts-Diskurses zu beschreiben. Ausgangspunkt für die besonders an Gen 6,5 anknüpfende Position der „Unfähigkeit des Menschen zur Vervollkommnung“: Alle Reflexionen geschehen in Gen 6,5ff. nur von Gott her und auf das Verhältnis Mensch-Gott hin; es gibt keine individuell/kollektive Unterscheidung bei dieser Problematik, sowohl der einzelne Mensch wie auch die Menschheit sind imperfektibel. Das Konzept ist offen für einen Inklusionsansatz, der vom Differenzprinzip her denkt, verfolgt selbst aber eine (...)
