First Edition. Woodger, a theoretical biologist and philosopher, sought to make the biological sciences more rigorous and empirical by applying mathematical logic to biological theory. His work helped to bring about the modern synthesis of evolutionary biology, and had an enormous influence on the development of the philosophy of science in the 20th century. Taski’s appendix to this work is one of Tarski’s few contributions to biology. See Mancosu, “Logic and Biology: The Correspondence Between Alfred Tarski and Joseph H. Woodger,” Journal of Humanistic Mathematics, 11 (2021) 18-105.
