Monday 25th March – 1-2pm – Seminar Room, Byrne House

You are invited to the next session of the Biological Interest Group on Monday 25th March. As usual it will be held in the seminar room at Byrne House, from 1-2pm. Participants can bring lunch and drinks if they wish.

Pierre-Olivier Méthot will be leading the session, which will be based on his paper entitled ‘What is a Pathogen? Essay on the Nature of Biological Associations in Health and Disease’.

Pierre-Olivier would welcome feedback on the overall argument, structure, and content of the paper and especially maybe on the last section of the essay (on the use of imprecise terms in science). Particularly, he would like to know whether this approach sounds consistent with the rest of the paper, whether it should be augmented and clarified (and if so, how), or whether it should be left aside for a future paper. In all cases, comments, questions, or suggestions on any aspect of this work will be most welcome!

The article can be obtained by emailing Jim Lowe at jwel201 [at] – as it is a work in preparation please do not disseminate further without Dr. Méthot’s express permission.

For any further information on BIG, please contact either me at jwel201 [at] or Sabina Leonelli at S.Leonelli [at]
