An essential element of the probabilistic‐epigenetic perspective (and of systems models in general) is an emphasis on the coordination or coaction of influences over time. The chapter also briefly considers how a probabilistic‐epigenetic perspective relates to two major themes in developmental research: prevention science and the study of Cited by: 9.

B) Environmental changes can cause the activation of genes that are normally dormant.

Nowadays a growing number of philosophers of science are focusing their analyses on the complexities of development, and in Embryology, Epigenesis and Evolution Jason Scott Robert explores the nature of development against current trends in biological theory and practice and looks at the interrelations between development and evolution (evo-devo), an area of resurgent biological interest.

The Handbook of Developmental Science, Behavior, and Genetics brings together the cutting-edge theory, research and methodology that contribute to our current scientific understanding of the role of genetics in the developmental system.

Probabilistic epigenesis is the view that the development of an organism is dependent on the bidirectional influences of interacting biological and environmental forces that form a larger system. His view attempts to encompass all of the factors influencing development.

Probabilistic epigenesis. Gottlieb G(1). Author information: (1)Center for Developmental Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC, USA. The notion that phenotypic traits, including behavior, can be predetermined has slowly given way in biology and psychology over the last two decades.

PROBABILISTIC EPIGENESIS: A DIFFERENT WAY OF STATING THE ROLE OF EXPERIENCE AND BIOLOGY IN DEVELOPMENT In their commentaries, both Bushnell and Marshall, Fox, and Henderson com-plained that we downplayed the biological contributions to developmental transi-tions.

We take issue with them on two scores. First, biological factors were not the. A feature of probabilistic epigenesis and developmental theory more generally speaking is the embryological concept of equifinality, meaning that the same developmental outcome can be reached by different routes (or from different starting points).
