The impact of Charles Darwin#xE2;#x80;#x99;s work on Western civilization has beenbroad and deep. As much as anyone in the modern era, he changed humanthought, and his influence is still felt in virtually all aspects ofour lives. This new edition, larger and more varied than the previousones, includes more of Darwin's own work and also presents the mostrecent research and scholarship on all aspects of Darwin#xE2;#x80;#x99;s legacy. Thebiological sciences, as well as social thought, philosophy, ethics,religion, and literature, have all been shaped and reshaped byevolutionary concepts. Excerpts from the most important books and articles of recent yearsconfirm this Darwinian heritage. New work by Richard Dawkins, Edward O.Wilson, Kevin Padian, Eugene C. Scott, Steven Pinker, Daniel Dennett,Michael Ruse, Frans de Waal, Noretta Koertge, George C. Williams,George Levine, Stephen Jay Gould, Gillian Beer, Ernst Mayr, and manyothers illuminates this exciting intellectual history. A wide-rangingnew introduction by the editor provides context and coherence to thisrich body of engaging material, much of which will be shaping humanthought well into the new century. This edition will be useful to scientists and historians alike: "TheNorton Darwin explains Darwinian evolution and illustrates the socialand intellectual conflicts of the past two centuries better than anyother book that I am aware of." (Charles Taylor, Professor of Biology,Ecology, and Evolution, University of California, Los Angeles) And it will be of great value to the humanities and social sciences aswell: "The edition provides the sharpest and most exciting access toDarwin we have ever had. It shows all of us interested in the heart ofour intellectual heritage how that heritage is sustained, manipulated,and honored." (James R. Kincaid, Aerol Arnold Professor of English,University of Southern California) A Selected Bibliography and an Index are included.
