        I would like to thank all the commentators for the time and effort they devoted to reading and commenting on our work. I would especially like to thank my friend Rueylin Chen for organizing this workshop and inviting me to come. This is our fourth time to visit with each other (twice in Taiwan) and we always find that our ideas have much in common. This is especially surprising since we live half way around the world from each other and come from different backgrounds. This is a wonderful part of the cooperation with colleagues in philosophy of biology around the world. I have very much enjoyed meeting and talking to all the participants in the Japan-Taiwan Workshop in Philosophy and History of Biology.
