Product Description

Review

"[this] volume is a valuable summary of the 'state of art' in the philosophy of evolutionary biology as well as containing a number of valuable articles critical of behavior genetics, sociobiology, and, by implication, parts of evolutionary psychology." Human Nature Review

"This volume can be read by those interested in the broader aspects of science, the relationship between science and history, and science and politics. It provides a framework, by the example of one person's life and work, for how to situate science in society." Book Reviews

"The scope and themes of the essays in this volume are a fitting honor to Richard Lewontin...More than 25 essays address the social science aspects of Lewontin's field(s) of experience" SB&F July/August 2001

Book Description

This second of two volumes published by Cambridge University Press in honor of Richard Lewontin begins with an essay by Lewontin on Natural History and Formalism in Evolutionary Genetics. Chapter 2 is an extended interview with Lewontin, covering the history of evolutionary genetics as seen from his perspective and as exemplified by his career. The remaining chapters, contributed by former students, post-docs, colleagues and collaborators, cover issues ranging from the history and conceptual foundations of evolutionary biology and genetics, to the implications of human genetic diversity, to the political economy of agriculture and public health.
