Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Epistemology
  • Social science
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Epistemology, Philosophy of science, Cognitive science, Function and Philosophy of biology. Many of his studies on Epistemology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Natural selection. His Natural selection study combines topics in areas such as Sociocultural evolution and Cognitive psychology.

His work deals with themes such as Genetics, Cell theory, Genetic code and Adaptationism, which intersect with Philosophy of science. His Cognitive science research includes themes of Cognitive development and Cognition. His Philosophy of biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Group selection, Game theory and Interactor.

His most cited work include:

  • Theory and reality : an introduction to the philosophy of science (447 citations)
  • Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection (428 citations)
  • Complexity and the function of mind in nature (410 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Epistemology, Cognitive science, Philosophy of biology, Ecology and Evolutionary biology. In his study, Darwinism is inextricably linked to Natural selection, which falls within the broad field of Epistemology. In his research, Peter Godfrey-Smith undertakes multidisciplinary study on Cognitive science and Function.

His Philosophy of biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cognition, Subjectivity and Game theory. His Octopus tetricus and Adaptation study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Metapopulation. His research brings together the fields of Selection and Evolutionary biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epistemology (35.56%)
  • Cognitive science (20.74%)
  • Philosophy of biology (19.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cognitive science (20.74%)
  • Epistemology (35.56%)
  • Multicellular organism (5.93%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Peter Godfrey-Smith focuses on Cognitive science, Epistemology, Multicellular organism, Ecology and Subjectivity. His Cognitive science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Simple and Contrast. Peter Godfrey-Smith applies his multidisciplinary studies on Epistemology and Mainstream in his research.

His work in Multicellular organism addresses subjects such as Biological evolution, which are connected to disciplines such as Sequence, Eukaryotic cell, Evolutionary biology and Evolutionary transitions. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Epistasis and NK model. His studies deal with areas such as Philosophy of biology and Cognition as well as Subjectivity.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An option space for early neural evolution. (77 citations)
  • A tortoise–hare pattern seen in adapting structured and unstructured populations suggests a rugged fitness landscape in bacteria (52 citations)
  • A tortoise–hare pattern seen in adapting structured and unstructured populations suggests a rugged fitness landscape in bacteria (52 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Epistemology
  • Ecology
  • Social science

Peter Godfrey-Smith mainly investigates Ecology, Multicellular organism, Octopus, Cuttlefish and Octopus tetricus. In the field of Ecology, his study on Adaptation overlaps with subjects such as Metapopulation. Peter Godfrey-Smith combines subjects such as Epistemology, Subjectivity, Philosophy of biology and Cognition with his study of Multicellular organism.

He has included themes like Camouflage, Zoology, Animal communication and Convergent evolution in his Octopus study. His research integrates issues of Literature, Tree of life and Consciousness in his study of Cuttlefish. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Social behavior, Ecology and Mating.
