Title: A philosophical analysis of fitness commensurability. Case study: evolutionary transitions in individuality (2018-2020, funded by Narodowe Centrum Nauki)
Position: Principial investigator
Abstract: The first research task is to conduct a philosophical analysis of the conditions of fitness commensurability. This analysis will provide a theoretical framework that will determine when a comparison of the fitness of two individuals is theoretically justified. The second research task is to use this framework to understand whether we can compare the fitness of units which have undergone Evolutionary Transtions in Individuality (ETI) with those which have not, and thus whether we can understand how the fitness of a given unit is changed during an ETI.
