Implications of Darwinism in Philosophy and the Social and Natural Sciences
Brinkworth / Weinert (Hg)
2011, 400 S, 20 Abb, Gb, (Springer)
This book of essays by leading scientists and philosophers, aims to showcase and explore challenging and open problems at the forefront of modern Darwinism, including philosophical aspects. This interdisciplinary volume is unique in that it considers the key notions of evolutionary theory in approaches to the mind, in the philosophy of biology, in the social sciences and the humanities, as well as recent challenges to and extensions of Neo-Darwinism. The essays demonstrate that Darwinism is an evolving paradigm, with a sphere of influence far greater than Darwin could have imagined when he published The Origin of Species in 1859.
