Books Info:

The International Library of Essays on Evolutionary Thought free pdf The theory of evolution is one of science's great achievements and it plays a pivotal role in guiding new research. But could the theory also be capable of illuminating phenomena outside the scope of biology? The volumes in this series explore this question by bringing together some of the seminal writings of the past two decades which explore the relevance of evolution and evolutionarily-inspired thought to arenas of human life beyond the merely biological. The volume editors are experts in the philosophy of biology and they focus the volumes on particular controversies within each field: to what extent are the processes of selection and reproduction that explain changes in gene frequencies also at work in explaining the reproduction of ideas? Is the content of moral systems explained by evolution? Can evolution shed light on why we think as we do, perceive as we do, even feel as we do? The series also includes a volume devoted to an understanding of the theory of evolutionary biology as it is applied to the field. These volumes, which are essential for researchers in the areas of the philosophy of science, the history of ideas, applied philosophy, ethics and philosophy and theology, demonstrate a deepened appreciation for the power and ambition of evolutionary thought and a greater understanding of what it means to be an evolved being.
