Focuses on 3 issues of debate - the nature of selection, the nature and scope of adaptation, and the question of evolutionary progress. In a clear, non-technical style, it traces the varying interpretations to which these issues were subjected from the beginning and the fierce contemporary debates that still resonate.
This is a thoughtful and clearly written book that serves as a fine introduction to the ways in which evolutionary thought has itself evolved since the time of Darwin. I learned a lot from it, and I feel confident that anybody who is fascinated by these centrally important ideas will also take something useful away from it.
