About this book

Collection of articles on the philosophy of biology, from the 1980s to the present. They cover a broad range of topics: sociobiology, evolutionary psychology, species, race, altruism, genetic determinism, and the rebirth of creationism in Intelligent Design.

In Mendel's Mirror performs the valuable service of collecting together some of the finest essays in philosophy of biology written in the last two decades, and gives a fascinating insight into Kitcher's intellectual development over that period. Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews What is most striking about the book is its uniformly high quality ... each essay is substantive, penetrating and authoritative. Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
