Chapter Five is about species thinking—the capacity for thought to move through life forms, not as specimens but as complex assemblages distended in time and space. This capacity arises from geneticists’ ability to formulate epistemological alignments between species. What can be known about any one species often depends upon calibrating what is known about and through others, typically model organisms.
