This introductory chapter considers the development of philosophy in the twentieth century. It explains why an engagement with neo-Lamarckism forces us to consider the causal link between multiple levels of organization and analysis. It also argues that interactions between principles of causality operate in different ways between levels of selection.

Keywords:   philosophy, neo-Lamarckism, analysis, causality, selection
