Abstract

This paper draws on the author's work in social epistemology
and on comparative studies of sciences of human behavior to
draw attention to the importance of interaction. Drawing
further on recent and contemporary research in biology,
she argues that interaction ought to be considered a
distinct ontological category, not reducible to properties of
its participants.
