The 10 original essays in Evolution at a Crossroads explore
"post-Kuhnian" approaches to conceptual problems in contemporary
evolutionary and developmental theory. They focus in particular on
the effect that current, rapid developments in molecular biology
are having on our understanding of evolution and philosophy of
science.Philosophy of science has swung widely between the dogmas
of logical empiricism and relativism. Evolution at a Crossroads
seeks to forge a new synthesis of the two trends to search for a
more solid framework for evolutionary biology as well as a more
solid philosophy of science. Complementing and extending such
anthologies as Elliot Sober's Conceptual Issues in Evolutionary
Biology, Robert Brandon's and Richard Burrian's Genes, Organisms,
Populations, and Marjorie Grene's Dimensions of Darwinism, this
book adds substantially to the emerging and rapidly developing
discipline known as "the philosophy of biology."David J. Depew is
Professor of Philosophy, and Bruce H. Weber is Professor of
Chemistry and Molecular Biology, at California State University,
