Álvaro Moreno
Full professor of Science Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). He created the Biology and Cognition Philosophy Research Group (IAS-Research Group). He is the author of more than 150 scientific publications (including two monographs and four edited volumes) and has made almost as many contributions to national and international conferences. He focuses on the philosophy of biology, artificial life, complex systems, and cognitive science, and his areas of interest encompass the philosophy of biology, general science philosophy, the study of complex systems, self-organisation, artificial life, and the origin of life and cognition.

The question of the origin of life cannot be explained by appealing exclusively to Darwinian evolutionary mechanisms, as many experts tend to assume, but requires a profound change in perspective.
