It also draws on a broader range of disciplines and brings neglected cognitive, anthropological, and historical dimensions to philosophical debates over species.

Media reviews
This is a fresh, well-conceived collection on one of the most persistent problems in the philosophy of biology--the species problem. Unlike most anthologies, but like many species, it is cohesive and integrated. --Robert N. Brandon, Professor of Philsophy and Zoology, Duke University
