About this title:

Synopsis: This critical collection of essays represents the best of the best when it comes to philosophy of biology. Many chapters treat evolution as a biological phenomenon, but the author is more generally concerned with science itself. Present-day science, particularly current views on systematics and biological evolution are investigated. The aspects of these sciences that are relevant to the general analysis of selection processes are presented, and they also serve to exemplify the general characteristics exhibited by science since its inception.

Review: "Hull covers a set of topics that are of central importance to systematists and other evolutionists as well as to philosophers and historians of science: individuality, classification, historical explanation, human nature, and much more." -- Michael J. Donoghue, University of Arizona

"David Hull is the leading philosopher of biology today--in many respects he is the founder of the field. This book is a collection of his essays over twenty years, and will (deservedly) attract much attention, by philosophers and biologists." -- Michael Ruse University of Guelph
