The concepts of form and function have traditionally been defined
in terms of biology and then extended to other disciplines. The
author examines the various interpretations of form and function in
science and philosophy, reflecting on the philosophical
presuppositions underlying the work of Geoffroy, Cuvier and Darwin,
among others. In the continental tradition of Canguilhem and
Foucalt, the author's treatment of the historical form/function
dispute analyzes the complex interactions among ideology,
metaphysical commitment and causal mechanisms.
