    Abstract: The field of biomechanics thrives on collaborations between engineers and biologists. With the
    recent emphasis on biomimicry and bioinspiration, such collaborations are bound to increase in
    number and may be central to many future research programs. Far too often, however, there is no
    resonance between the philosophies that guide each research program. Engineers tend to look at
    biological phenomena with a designer’s eye, something against which biologists are explicitly
    cautioned. On the other hand, biologists may often prefer a descriptive route over a mechanistic one.
    How can we make such collaborations resonate better from an intellectual perspective? In this essay, I
    describe a short historical account of biomimicry and bioinspiration, and offer suggestions for better
    collaborations between engineers and biologists, with examples of cases in which fruitful approaches
    have been adopted.
