The Biology Project. Biology. History The objects of our research will be the different forms and manifestations of life, the conditions and laws under which these phenomena occur, and the causes through which they have been effected.


The science that concerns itself with these objects we will indicate by the name biology [Biologie] or the doctrine of life [Lebenslehre]. Although modern biology is a relatively recent development, sciences related to and included within it have been studied since ancient times. Natural philosophy was studied as early as the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Indian subcontinent, and China. Biology. Falser Words Were Never Spoken. IN a coffee shop not long ago, I saw a mug with an inscription from Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!

But while the definitions may vary, the general sentiments remain the same: Leaders are people who know how to achieve goals and inspire people along the way. Want Collaboration?: Accept—and Actively Manage—Conflict.

The challenge is a long-standing one for senior managers: How do you get people in your organization to work together across internal boundaries?

Want Collaboration?: Accept—and Actively Manage—Conflict

All employers are keen to recruit graduates who are able to cooperate, solve problems and work in teams.

How to assess your group work skills

As less hierarchical organisations have emerged with project teams, self-managed work teams and management teams, so the requirements to 'Get on well with people', and to 'Work with and through others' become increasingly important. Teamwork involves working confidently within a group, contributing your own ideas effectively, taking a share of the responsibility, being assertive - rather than passive or aggressive, accepting and learning from constructive criticism and giving positive, constructive feedback to others.
