Gregory Rupik

Gregory Rupik is a PhD candidate studying the history and philosophy of biology at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto. His research encompasses both the history and philosophy of biology. On the one hand, he is explicating the understanding of organisms which emerged from German Biology at the turn of the 19th century, specifically that which resulted from the relationship between Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schelling. On the other hand, he is researching current shifts away from Modern Synthesis evolution theory, namely organism-centered 'Situated Darwinism' (Walsh 2015).
His other research interests include imagination in science, scientific and aesthetic epistemology, feminist science, indigenous science, and theories of scientific change. He also has an MA in Catholic systematic theology, and research the relationship between science and Christianity and ecotheology.
