Philosophers Index Abstract
In the paper, starting from a slightly modified version of van Fraassen's pragmatic approach to explanation, I will propose a pragmatical meta-model for the different biological explanatory models. That is, I will offer a pragmatic point of view to rule different explanatory models in function of the biological context from which the given biologist explains.
(???):Focuses on the search for contextualized approach to rule the different biological explanation models. Use of preliminary assumptions; Classification of pragmatic meta-model as absolute; Application of causality1 in biological interaction.
