Conrad Hal Waddington (1905–1975) was an English biologist who was especially interested in the big (metaphysical) questions of life. His thinking has become part of the foundation of modern systems biology. This article applies his thinking to middle-years school biology curricula (for ages 11–16), to see if their approach to epistemic questions might be reframed to allow students to understand more about the nature of life.
