Challenging the Central Dogma of biogenetics (causation only travels from the genes to the rest of the organism), some current work explores epigenetic (chemical and hormonal) and psychological influences on heredity, arguing that some causal influences work downward from higher functions to the lower levels, thereby 1) challenging the neo-Darwinian tenet that all genes changes are random with regard to fitness, and 2) opening the door to the emergence of final causation from within nature itself.
