Promotional Information

The essays in this volume provide ample food for thought, and from all the major food groups! The Modern Synthesis in evolutionary theory, and what lies beyond, are assessed here from multiple angles. This book will greatly interest evolutionary biologists and philosophers of evolutionary biology alike. -- Elliot Sober, Hans Reichenbach Professor and William F. Vilas Research Professor, Department of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin-Madison The twenty-first century will likely be the century of biology, just as the twentieth century was the century of physics. The central, organizing theory of biology is -- and will remain -- the theory of evolution. If you want to know how the theory of evolution will likely expand and be configured in the twenty-first century, reading Evolution, the Extended Synthesis is a good way to start. -- Francisco J. Ayala, Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences, University of California, Irvine and author of Human Evolution: Trails from the Past

Reviews

An impressive and provocative overview; it should become the focus of semester-long graduate student reading groups across the country, as it has at my home institution.

-Michael J. Wade, BioScience
