Series: Life and Mind: Philosophical Issues in Biology and Psychology. Not only is this book a far cry from the simplistic genetic determinism that characterizes many popular discussions of evolution, but it is also a departure from 20th-century Darwinian orthodoxy.
Series: Life and Mind: Philosophical Issues in Biology and Psychology. Paperback: 472 pages. While genetic changes are usually blind to outcomes, the variations that are transmitted epigenetically, behaviorally or symbolically are often more targeted, arising in responses to signals from the environment.
Eva Jablonka and Marion Lamb have been challenging orthodoxy and promoting heresy . Similar principles hold for epigenetic and symbolic evolution.
Eva Jablonka and Marion Lamb have been challenging orthodoxy and promoting heresy in genetics and evolution for twenty years. Their systematic and comprehensive perspective on genetic, epigenetic, behavioral, and symbolic inheritance in evolution is backed up with detailed empirical data, illustrated in a wide survey of phenomena, and presented in clear and forthright prose. Eva Jablonka and Marion Lamb's stimulating new book successfully challenges some of the old orthodoxies. I recommend it warmly to anybody with a serious interest in developmental and evolutionary biology.

Eva Jablonka, Marion J. Lamb & Anna Zeligowski. Building on existing criteria used for the identification of behavioral homology from behavioral ecology, I develop a set of operational criteria for identifying novelty in the behavioral domain. These criteria provide a conceptual foundation for the study of novelty in behavioral traits. Evolutionary Biology, Misc in Philosophy of Biology. In addition, designating a trait as innate establishes important facts that apply at the ng level of description.

Eva Jablonka,, and Marion J. Lamb. Evolution in four dimensions: Genetic, epigenetic, behavioral, and symbolic variation in the history of life. Jablonka and Lamb begin by discussing genetic assimilation, proposed in 1942 by British geneticist and embryologist . Waddington treated the pupae of fruit flies with heat shock, causing many of the flies to have abnormal wings lacking cross veins. Jablonka and Lamb, however, hang onto Waddington’s concept of genetic assimilation and extend it to develop ideas of behavioral assimilation and symbolic assimilation.
