Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Unquestionably one of the very best on Darwin and his work."--Science. "Ghiselin is nothing if not downright in his statements, and many are valuable for their vigorous striking of nails right on the head."--New York Review of Books. With the publication of The Origin of Species, Charles Darwin assured himself of a lasting place in the history of ideas. This volume surveys the complete range of the great evolutionist's accomplishments, offering a coherent and consistent treatment of the flow of ideas throughout Darwin's works. Author Michael T. Ghiselin constructs a unified theoretical system that explains the major features of Darwin's investigations, evaluating the literature from a historical, scientific, and philosophical perspective. In addition to an analysis of Darwin's concepts and the potential rationales behind his thinking, Ghiselin offers suggestions about how the evolutionary scientist formed his ideas and reached his conclusions.

Book News Annotation:

Ghiselin (California Academy of Sciences) evaluates Charles Darwin's extensive literature—not only from a historical and a scientific point of view, but also from a philosophical perspective—offering solutions to address the lack of consensus by scholars on many issues related to Darwin's research. The book forms a useful survey of Darwin's concepts and rationale, and builds a unified theoretical system that explains all the major features of his significant work. The study is an unabridged republication of the 1972 edition (except for a new preface by the author), and it can serve as an introduction to Darwin's ideas for both general readers and scientists.
