  1. Parts and Wholes: The Human Microbiome, Ecological Ontology, and the Challenges of Community.Gregory W. Schneider & Russell Winslow - 2014 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 57 (2):208-223.
    Starting in June 2012, a series of articles in the journal Nature and in the online journals of the Public Library of Science made public the first results of a massive, international collaborative scientific endeavor known as the “Human Microbiome Project” . This project, which is attempting to categorize the vast number of microbiological species and organisms that live in and on the “healthy” human body, raises important questions about what it means to be a whole individual organism, especially if (...)

    On Mimetic Style in Plato's Republic.Russell Winslow - 2012 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 45 (1):46-64.
    In book 3 of his Republic, Plato has Socrates undertake an assessment of the educational curriculum that the city (which is being constructed by him in speech) will implement for its youth. Consequently we see that Socrates assigns to poetry a crucial importance; by their imitation of it, poetry shapes the citizens with an initial formation, casts them within a certain orientation, and places them on a path leading in an already conceived direction, toward some unarticulated good. Thus, in forming (...)

    Biological Meaning.Russell Winslow - 2014 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 19 (1):65-85.
    In the following article, the author offers an interpretation of George Canguilhem’s thinly articulated concept “biological meaning.” As a way into the problem, the article begins with the question: how does “biological meaning” differ from other forms of meaning? That is to ask, if we are to hold that the mere physical/chemical mode of being of a stone differs from the biological mode of being of an organism, how do they differ in their meaning? In an effort to supply an (...)

    Enlightenment Infinitesimals and Tolstoy’s War and Peace.Russell Winslow - 2020 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 24 (2):433-451.
    During the Enlightenment period the concept of the infinitesimal was developed as a means to solve the mathematical problem of the incommensurability between human reason and the movements of physical beings. In this essay, the author analyzes the metaphysical prejudices subtending Enlightenment Humanism through the lens of the infinitesimal calculus. One of the consequences of this analysis is the perception of a two-fold possibility occasioned by the infinitesimal. On the one hand, it occasions an extreme form of humanism, “transhumanism,” which (...)

  7. Organism and Environment: Inheritance and Subjectivity in the Life Sciences.Russell Winslow - 2017 - Lexington Books.
    In this book, Russell Winslow analyzes contemporary discourses in microbiology and evolutionary inheritance theory to foreground the metaphysical prejudices that unreflectively subtend these discourses, highlight and illuminate an emergent prejudice of an ecological ontology in microbiology, and determine what interpretive possibilities it affords.

    On the Nature of Epagôgê.Russell Winslow - 2006 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 11 (1):81-107.
    This essay pursues an interpretation of epagôgê in Aristotle in order to challenge the current claims in the scholarship that Aristotle’s method of discovery is, on the one hand, empirical or, on the other hand, a priori. In contrast to these claims, this essay offers a reading of the Analytica in conjunction with the Physics in order to propose the following: if we are to think through Aristotle’s method of discovery, we must first unhinge ourselves from the oppositional paradigm of (...)
