Product Description

Review

If you want to know how genetics and evolutionary biology were forged into a monolithic Darwinian whole, then read The Evolutionary Synthesis. These reissued transcripts date from a conference in 1974, when many of the architects of the synthesis were still around to present their own personal recollections. New Scientist [UK] Praise for the first edition: [This] book will appeal to anyone, evolutionist or not, who is interested in the history and philosophy of science. -- Matt Cartmill New England Journal of Medicine Classic essays by key players in the 'modern synthesis' of evolutionary biology. Nature This book provides not only a good history of the evolutionary synthesis, but many new scientific insights and ideas. I found myself rethinking a number of subtle and some not-so-subtle points of evolutionary theory while reading this historical work...The Evolutionary Synthesisis a major contribution to the history of biology, and for the specialist in evolutionary biology it is an important scientific work. -- Walter J. Bock Auk If you want to know how genetics and evolutionary biology were forged into a monolithic Darwinian whole, then read The Evolutionary Synthesis. New Scientist [UK]
