One way to understand science is as a selection process. David Hull, one of the dominant figures in contemporary philosophy of science, sets out in this volume a general analysis of this selection process that applies equally to biological evolution, the reaction of the immune system to antigens, operant learning, and social and conceptual change in science. Science and Selection brings together many of Hull's most important essays on selection (some never before published) in one accessible volume.

Review:

"Most of these essays have been previously published but are so widely scattered in the literature that it is worthwhile to have them in a single volume. Highly recommended." Choice

"...a series of provocative writings on biological and conceptual evolution and the philosophy of science...Science and Selection discharges its duty well, collecting Hull's mature thoughts on a variety of important topics...in an affordable and accessible package." Journal of the History of Biology
