Series: Cambridge Studies in Philosophy and Biology. Paperback: 328 pages.

The first half of the book explores most of the main theoretical controversies about evolution and selection, while the second half of the book applies some of these ideas in considering cognitive evolution. These essays, some never before published, form a coherent whole that defends not jut an overall conception of evolution, but also a distinctive take on cognitive evolution.

This book brings together important essays by one of the leading philosophers of science at work today. Unlike other studies in the field of environmental philosophy, this book is as much concerned with epistemological issues as with environmental ethics. Elisabeth A. Lloyd examines several of the central topics in philosophy of biology, including the structure of evolutionary theory, units of selection, and evolutionary psychology, as well as the Science Wars, feminism and science, and sexuality and objectivity. She also offers an innovative analysis of the concept of objectivity.
