About this book

BB Human Nature After Darwin is a clear, accessible introduction to the implications of the Darwinian revolution for our understanding of human nature. With the beginner firmly in mind, Janet Radcliffe Richards carefully introduces readers to the fundamental questions raised by the Darwinian revolution. By the end of the book readers will be able to: understand and evaluate Darwin's arguments and the implications of Darwinism for our understanding of human nature critically discuss writings by key commentators on Darwinism, such as Richard Dawkins and Stephen Jay Gould clearly and confidently appraise the implications of Darwinism for ethical thinking. Key features include activities and exercises enabling readers to monitor their progress throughout the book, chapter summaries, and guides to further reading.


The theory and the evidence; internecine strife - degrees of Darwinism; gigantic lumbering robots; selfish genes and moral animals; onwards and upwards.
