Abstract - "Reflexive biology", using the ambiguities of the term, is altogether a biology that plays with the mirrors of the different levels of organisation, which, endlessly, go from one place to another, organisms in their real environment to the genome via cells in vitro and others, but which is also reflexive because at any moment biology reflects the finalities and the worry of what it should serve.
Key words: comparative biology / evolutive biology / systemic biology / integrative biology
