Title: Tuomas Tahko
Where Do You Get Your Protein? (Or: Biochemical Realization)

Biochemical kinds such as proteins pose interesting problems for  
philosophers of science. They can be studied both from the point of view of  
biology and chemistry, but these different perspectives may result in  
different classificatory practices. I will examine the tension that such  
classificatory differences produce. We will see that the reducibility of  
the biological functions of biochemical kinds to the chemical structures  
that realize these functions is a key question here. This leads us to a  
more general discussion of multiple realizability and realization at the  
biology-chemistry interface. The conclusion is that genuine multiple  
realizability may be rare at this interface.
