Dear colleagues --

I am a political philosopher with professional interests in (human) biology
and genetics particularly related to the problem of evolution - to put is
as broadly as possible. Therefore, I am relating to the internal concerns
of your discipline as a non-professionist but not completely diletantish
observer.
I would have the following requests to the member of this list:

1. I would need some regular means of information about the current state
and the theoretical problems facing the field. I would appreciate if you
could indicate any internet resources which you see fitted to the
description produced above. In particular, I would need information about
mailing lists and regular e-mail newsletters covering the field (even if
they are rather technical) - preferably with a subscription base in the
scientific comunity.

2. if there are people interested in approaches to their discipline related
to its wider theoretical, philosophical and political implications, I would
be happy to exchange ideas with them. I see it as a collaboration across
the border of the narrow speciality, with specialists who are willing to
provide feedback and corrections to speculative and theoretical
interpretations of their work. These exchanges could be project-related or
rather general, depending on the convergence of interests.

3. any advise you might have as to how to direct my investigation will be
welcome.

Thank you for accepting this posting on your list, and many thanks in
advance to those of you who will reply.

Sincerely,

Prof. Mircea Boari,
PhD in Political Science
