This chapter briefly summarizes some achievements of developmental biology. It suggests that the phenomenon of developpment, a traditional refuge for vitalistic theories of life, can in fact be treated as deconstructing the traditional concept of life. Development is neither a wonderful coordination nor a creative struggle between the parts of an “organism.” Rather, it is ruled by complex mechanisms unconcerned with any lself-organizing corporality.

Keywords:   Developpment, morphogenesis, self-organization, positional information theory, space and time
