Title: How to Prove that Philosophy is important to everything: Applications to Philosophy of Science

Philosophy is involved in many fields, which do not recognize its
importance. My academic career illustrates this fact. I studied
philosophical issues within debates about evolutionary biology from the
1990s forward. The field changed immensely with new discoveries about
genetics in the late 1990s. But these discoveries required new
philosophical understanding, just as much as new factual knowledge.
Keeping track of the philosophical changes was just as difficult as keeping
track of factual discoveries.
