Adaptation and Natural Selection : A Critique of Some Current Evolutionary Thought, Paperback / softback Book

Adaptation and Natural Selection : A Critique of Some Current Evolutionary Thought Paperback / softback

Part of the Princeton Science Library series

Description

Biological evolution is a fact--but the many conflicting theories of evolution remain controversial even today.

When Adaptation and Natural Selection was first published in 1966, it struck a powerful blow against those who argued for the concept of group selection--the idea that evolution acts to select entire species rather than individuals.

Williams's famous work in favor of simple Darwinism over group selection has become a classic of science literature, valued for its thorough and convincing argument and its relevance to many fields outside of biology.

Now with a new foreword by Richard Dawkins, Adaptation and Natural Selection is an essential text for understanding the nature of scientific debate.
