Media reviews
The author brings together a deep, sensitive knowledge of contemporary evolutionary theory and the social sciences, particularly as they interact with human biology. You may not agree with everything that he concludes, but my strong suspicion is that even as you argue with Petrinovich, you will learn and revise your own opinions. Highly recommended! - Michael Ruse, Departments of Philosophy and Zoology, University of Guelph; "Powerfully argued and very well written....an outstanding contribution to a difficult debate." - Patrick Bateson, Professor of Ethology, University of Cambridge, and Provost, King's College, Cambridge"
