9780199737260: The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology (Oxford Handbooks)

The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology is an exciting collection of new essays written especially to give the reader an introduction to one of the most vibrant areas of scholarship today, and at the same time to move the subject forward dramatically. Written in a clear and rigorous style it will give the more experienced scholar much to think about and will also be of great value to the new student of the subject. The handbook covers the history of the topic, then moves into important analyses of contemporary evolutionary thinking, and continues with discussions of genetics and the moral and epistemological foundations of our understanding of heredity. The book goes on to cover ecology, behavior and morality, and does not neglect religion or feminist issues. Finally, it takes up matters to do with language and metaphor.

The authors range from the senior and experienced to new and exciting young scholars. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology is a collection that will be of interest to philosophers of science, to philosophers generally, as well as biologists of all kinds. There is no better way to learn about this dynamic field than through the essays in this volume.

About the Author:


Michael Ruse is Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University

Review:


"The philosophy of biology is thriving as never before, and the hefty Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology --edited by the philosopher/historian Michael Ruse, who is as responsible as anyone for the field's current flourishing --is ample testament to the continuing vitality of what Ruse rightly describes in his introduction as 'an incredibly exciting area of research.'" --Philosophy in Review
