The Species Problem, Biological Species, Ontology, and the Metaphysics of Biology Sept. 19 2006
By F. Emilia Cirstea - Published on
Format: Paperback
Above any expectations!The book is very comprehensive and cohesive. Bright writer, Stamos combined in an informative whole the modern species problem and is equally skillful at speaking to a broad audience including scholars and students alike. In a provocative but delightfull style, Stamos critically appraises the major comtemporary views of species and offers an interesting solution to the "problem".

Great contribution! Feb. 18 2008
By Tonci Kokic - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ontological position of biological species (are biological species real, and if, what is their nature) is one of hard, and still unsolved issues in philosophy and biology. Stamos gave a great contribution in philosophical inquiry of species problem, with original and interesting solution. His view of species as relation is well-founded in philosophy, with comprehensive, balance and serious treatment of species concept. The Species Problem is unavoidable reading for anybody who want to study the philosophy of biology. The future of Stamos book is to be a classic literature.
