Adaptation and Natural Selection : A Critique of Some Current Evolutionary Thought Paperback / softback
Part of the Princeton Science Library series
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.
