Nature-nurture dichotomy and related dualisms; concepts of development and evolution and the relationship between them; biological essentialism

Discussion Topic: If we see evolution as change in ways of changing, should evolutionary robotics take into account the developmental integration of the newly evolved with the old? And: Could the achievement of body transparency that Fuchs describes be related to the perceptual transformations that occur with use of prostheses (they sometimes become 'mine' or 'me') or even the renormalization of distorted input (eventual correction of inverted images from distorting lenses, etc.)?
