by Evelyn Fox KellerWritten by renowned historians, philosophers and biologists - including, among others, Stephen Jay Gould, Diane Paul, John Beatty, Robert Richards, Richard Lewontin, David Sloan Wilson, Peter Bowler and Richard Dawkins - these essays identify and explicate those terms in evolutionary biology which, though commonly used, are plagued by multiple concurrent and historically varying meanings. Exploring the complexity of keywords and clarifying their role in prominent issues in the field, this book should prove valuable to scientists and philosophers trying to come to terms with evolutionary theory. It should also serve as a useful guide to future research into the ways in which scientitic language works.
