Zdenka Brzović delivered the talk “‘Il genoma è mobile’: How that Affects the Traditional Function Debate?” co-authored with Vito Balorda. In this talk Zdenka and Vito defended the thesis that conceptual challenges regarding the ascription of functionality to mobile genomic elements can be surpassed if we endorse the weak etiological theory of biological functions. The 22nd Rijeka Conference in Philosophy “Contemporary Philosophical Issues” was held online, September 16 – 17, 2021.
