Examines the Darwinian research tradition in evolutionary biology from its inception to its turbulent present, arguing that recent advances in modelling the nonlinear dynamics of complex systems may well catalyze the next major phase of Darwinian evolution.|
`The last twenty years have seen an explosion of scholarship centered on Darwinism, by historians and philosophers. This book is an admirable summary of, and addition to, that scholarship' - John Maynard Smith, The New York Review of Books
This volume by Depew and Weber constitutes an academic contribution of the first rank. What the authors uncover about the past and propose for the future is revolutionary, indeed! They do not pretend to have made a watertight case for extending the Darwinian paradigm, but they certainly lay before the reader a delightful narrative of the possibilities. - Robert Ulanowicz, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory of the University of Maryland
