Essays by philosophers and scientists address conceptual issues in evolutionary biology; a new edition substantially updated, with new sections on women in the evolutionary process, evolutionary psychology, laws in evolutionary theory, and race.


About half of the 23 essays did not appear in the 1984 first edition; the others have been more or less revised to incorporate advances in the philosophy of biology. Among the topics are units of selection, phylogenetic inference, the reduction of Mendelian genetics to molecular biology, ethics and sociobiology, and cultural evolution and evolutionary epistemology.
