About this book

The claims of genetics and evolutionary psychology to explain and indeed legislate on the human condition have been loudly trumpeted in recent years. In this provocative and groundbreaking book, the editors have gathered together leading critics of this programme in a shared and perhaps uniquely cross-disciplinary project. Contributors range from biologists Stephen Jay Gould, Gabriel Dover, Patrick Bateson and Anne Fausto-Sterling, through anthropologists and sociologists Dorothy Nelkin, Tim Ingold, Tom Shakespeare and Ted Bunton.
