“Nevertheless, this new anthology is a useful addition to the existing collection of building blocks from which introductory courses in philosophy of biology are constructed”. (Acta Biotheor, 1 June 2013)
“Philosophy of Biology: An Anthology has selections that make it easy to teach evolutionary theory, clear up common misconceptions, and introduce students to genuinely important philosophical problems.” (Science & Education, 2010)
"This excellent anthology covers a wide range of biological disciplines and controversies. It demonstrates the great value of reflective philosophical analysis in interpreting biology and its claims about human nature. It is ideal for use in introductory courses in philosophy of biology."
"Philosophy of Biology: An Anthology is a splendid collection of papers dedicated to the current issues in the philosophy of biology. The book is organized around twelve major topics, with at least two papers for each topic, expressing contrasting views as appropriate, and all written by leading experts. This book will serve well as a text for courses in the philosophy of biology, and as supplementary reading in philosophy of science and other classes."
