Evolution

Most popular at the top

  • Origin of Speciesby Charles Darwin

    Start Publishing LLC 2012; US$ 1.99

    The Origin of Species is the landmark book that, for better or worse, puts science and religion at odds. Very few people have read this book and come away not believing in evolution. The detail of research is even by today's standards stunning; and the writing is still eminently readable. Second only to the Bible in its scope of influence, this book... more...

  • Mutual Aidby Kniaz Petr Alekseevich Kropotkin

    Start Publishing LLC 2012; US$ 1.99

    Written partly in response to Social Darwinism and in particular to Thomas H. Huxley's nineteenth-century essay, "The Struggle for Existence," Kropotkin's book drew on his experiences in scientific expeditions in Siberia to illustrate the phenomenon of cooperation. After examining the evidence of cooperation in nonhuman animals, pre-feudal societies,... more...

  • How the Zebra Got its Stripesby Léo Grasset; Barbara Mellor

    Profile Books 2016; US$ 9.31

    Why do giraffes have such long necks? Why are zebras striped? Why are buffalo herds broadly democratic while elephants prefer dictatorships? What explains the architectural brilliance of the termite mound or the complications of the hyena's sex life? And why have honey-badgers evolved to be one of nature's most efficient agents of mass destruction?... more...

  • A Unifying Theory of Evolution Generated by Means of Information Modellingby J. Brender McNair

    IOS Press 2016; Not Available

    Stringent ways of thinking, ‘conceptual frameworks’, are necessary in science. The drawback is that the associated assumptions, concepts, rules and practice may become so deeply entrenched that they turn into tacit knowledge and hence give rise to constraints in scientific thought and practice – that is, a new kind of plethora that seriously blinds... more...

  • Evidence-Based Evolutionary Medicineby John S. Torday

    Wiley 2018; US$ 99.95 US$ 89.96

    The teaching of evolutionary biology in medical schools is becoming more and more popular, yet Darwinian principles and evidence-based medicine remain poorly integrated. Nevertheless, there is a great advantage to this integration: by acquiring an understanding of the underlying principles, the student will find that biology becomes predictive and... more...

  • Evolution in Minutesby Darren Naish

    Quercus 2017; US$ 12.99

    How did life begin? What is the theory of evolution and is it proven? Are we really descended from apes? And has evolution stalled or is humanity just a step on the way to more advanced forms of life? Through 200 mini-essays, expert palaeontologist Darren Naish answers these and many other fundamental questions on the most controversial topic of... more...

  • Intelligent Design and Religion as a Natural Phenomenonby John S. Wilkins

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 350.00

    Over the past decade a strident public debate has arisen about the nature and origin of religions. Controversies include how exactly religion evolved, whether by individual or group selection, if it is adaptive, and if not, whether and how it is a side effect of evolution. This volume focuses on the issue of naturalizing religion: on the ways in which... more...

  • Animal Architectsby James L. Gould; Carol Grant Gould

    Basic Books 2012; US$ 26.00

    Animal behavior has long been a battleground between the competing claims of nature and nurture, with the possible role of cognition in behavior as a recent addition to this debate. There is an untapped trove of behavioral data that can tell us a great deal about how the animals draw from these neural strategies: The structures animals build provide... more...

  • Moral Originsby Christopher Boehm

    Basic Books 2012; US$ 40.00

    From the age of Darwin to the present day, biologists have been grappling with the origins of our moral sense. Why, if the human instinct to survive and reproduce is “selfish,” do people engage in self-sacrifice, and even develop ideas like virtue and shame to justify that altruism? Many theories have been put forth, some emphasizing the role of nepotism,... more...

  • Beyond Sex Differencesby Eric B. Keverne

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 68.00

    This book examines the evolutionary lead taken by the matriline in providing the intergenerational co-adaptations required for successful pregnancy. more...
