About this book


Does evolution inform the ancient debate regarding the roles that reason and instinct play in how we decide what to do? Evolution and Ethics offers an insightful analysis of four epistemological types of sociobiology which appear in the extant literature, and includes a preliminary analysis of Darwinism itself.
