9780521541985: The Evolution of Darwinism: Selection, Adaptation and Progress in Evolutionary Biology

No other scientific theory has had as great an impact on our understanding of the world as Darwin's theory outlined in his Origin of Species. Yet the theory has been the subject of controversy from its very beginning. This book focuses on three issues of debate in Darwin's theory of evolution--the nature of selection, the nature and scope of adaptation, and the question of evolutionary progress. It traces the varying interpretations to which these issues were subjected historically through the fierce contemporary debates continuing to rage.

Book Description:

The Evolution of Darwinism focuses on three issues of debate in Darwin's theory of evolution--the nature of selection, the nature and scope of adaptation, and the question of evolutionary progress. It traces the varying interpretations to which these issues were subjected from the beginning and the fierce contemporary debates still raging on.Written in a clear and non-technical style, this book will be of use as a textbook for students in the philosophy of science who need to become familiar with the background to the contemporary debates about evolution.

Review:

"This is a thoughtful and clearly written book that serves as a fine introduction to the ways in which evolutionary thought has itself evolved since the time of Darwin. I learned a lot from it, and I feel confident that anybody who is fascinated by these centrally important ideas will also take something useful away from it." Bioscience, Chrisopher Wills, UC San Diego

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book.
