Resumen


A raíz de los recientes descubrimientos en disciplinas emergentes como la epigenética o la eco-devo, el concepto genocentrista de herencia propio de la Síntesis Moderna ha sido sometido a un intenso análisis y revisión. El presente trabajo tiene por objetivo analizar las inconsistencias conceptuales y prácticas derivadas del concepto clásico de herencia, así como proponer un concepto pluralista e inclusivo. Para ello, se tomará como fenómeno de referencia la herencia epigenética. De estos análisis se concluirá que solo abrazando dicho concepto es posible superar las limitaciones prácticas y conceptuales del modelo de herencia propio de la Síntesis Moderna.
