Description:

The rise of omics signals a shift from hypothesis-driven to data-driven, “bottom-up” research, whereas systems biology stresses modeling and claims to move beyond reductionism. These trends are at opposite poles of a long-standing duality between empiricism and rationalism. Twenty-first-century biology might benefit from a consideration of how philosophers have approached and attempted to reconcile this duality.
