About this book

Sterelny moves beyond caricature to expose the real differences between the conceptions of evolution of these two leading scientists. He shows that the conflict extends beyond evolution to their very beliefs in science itself; and, in Gould's case, to domains in which science plays no role at all.

Second Edition fully extended and updated to consider Stephen Jay Gould's Structure of Evolutionary Theory and Dawkins' most recent books.

Review of the first edition:

"Slim and readable [...] the aficionado of evolutionary theory and the intense debate it engenders would do well to read it."
- Nature
