El Azar y la necesidad!

Monod starts off chapter I entitled “Of Strange Objects” with a consideration of the difference between natural and artificial objects and states that “the basic premise of the scientific method Monod lastly points out the evidence to suggest the development of the cognitive function of language in children depends upon postnatal growth of the cortex. El azar y la necesidad.

Monod mentions oligomeric globular proteins again and how they appear in aggregates containing geometrically equivalent protomer subunits associated into a non-covalent steric complex. He continues to explain how this important discovery has made it the duty of scientists to share with and enhance other disciplines of thought such as philosophy. Three stages which led to the emergence of the first organism are proposed.

He says this “random” message seems to be composed haphazardly from a random origin and he ends the chapter poetically when he writes “Randomness caught on the wing, preserved, reproduced by the machinery of invariance and thus converted into order, rule, and necessity. Allosteric interactions are mediated by discrete shifts in the proteins structure and this allows certain proteins to assume different conformational states.

He talks about the extraordinary specificity of action that enzymes display as exemplified by their ability to not only recognize a specific geometric isomer but an optical isomer as well.

In regards to structure, all living beings are made up of proteins and nucleic acids and these are the same residues twenty amino acids and four nucleotides. The Kingdom and darkness.

The author spends much of the chapter reviewing general facts of biochemistry. Different cells work in different ways at different times, however. Synthesis of mRNA is blocked when the repressor is bound to the axar. He states that the source of information for the antibodies associative structure is not the antigen itself but is instead the result of many random recombinations of part mond the antibody gene.


One is teleonomy which Monod defines as the characteristic of being “endowed with a purpose or project” Monod, 9.

The author next turns his attention to the central nervous system. The accidental random chance of these mutations and that these unpredictable mutations alone that are the source of evolution is pointed out and exemplified. Upon dissociation each protomer can assume a relaxed state and this concerted response of each protomer accounts for the nonlinearity of enzyme activity: The “error” in the genetic message will be replicated with a high degree of fidelity.

Publicar un comentario Agradeceremos aportes constructivos. In this complex the molecule of substrate is strictly positioned by the multiple non-covalent interactions with the enzyme. Finally, it is the primary structure of proteins that we shall consult for the “secret” to those cognitive properties thanks to which, like Maxwell’s demons, they animate and build living systems” Monod In reviewing the tertiary structure, what he calls the native shape, he talks about the non-covalent interactions which bind the amino acids and the folding that determines the molecules three-dimensional shape including the sterospecific binding site.

And lastly the evolution of a teleonomic apparatus around the “replicative structures” would lead to the primitive cell. He contends that these lines of necesivad abandon the postulate of objectivity and also contain the anthropocentric illusion.

Monod points out that this animist line of thought is still present in philosophy that makes no essential distinction between matter and life and frames biological evolution as a component of cosmic evolution evolutive force operating throughout the entire universe.

That mutations are unpredictable, faithfully replicated, and that natural selection operates only upon the products of chance is repeated at the start of chapter seven entitled “Evolution”. Allosteric enzymes azaar usually under the simultaneous control of several allosteric effectors. The author points out that the xzar vitalist argument lacks support and that it draws its justification not from knowledge or observations but from our present day lack of knowledge.


Azar y necesidad en la filosofía de la vida de J. Monod. “In memoriam”

Monod joined the staff of the Pasteur Institute in Paris in and became its director in Monod first gives an example of dissecting a computer and then points out how teleonomic performances can be seen on a molecular level. The author then spends some time developing the fact that the preceding sequence of amino acids had no bearing on what the next amino acid will be. Monod mnood us that this reaction comes at the expense of chemical potential energy. Enzymatic catalysis is believed to result from the inductive and polarizing action of certain chemical groupings of the specific receptor.

Since the activation energy of a covalent bond is high the reaction will have a slower speed than that of a non-covalent bond which occurs spontaneously and rapidly. The author spends the rest of the chapter discussing linguistic and physical human evolutionary development. These simple molecular mechanisms account for the integrative properties of allosteric enzymes. He believes this understanding will enable mankind to eliminate the dualism of differentiating between the brain and the mind.

The author then writes that a primary structure exists in a single or a small number of necessidad states, as is the case with allosteric proteins precisely defined conformational native state under normal physiological conditions.

It is this contingency of human existence that is the central message of Chance and Necessity; that life arose by chance and all beings of life, including humans, are the products of natural selection.
