Collaboratively edited by Vittorio Hosle (Paul G. Kimball Chair of Arts and Letters, Department of German Languages and Literatures, University of Notre Dame) and Christian Illies (Lecturer, Technical University of Eindhoven, Netherlands), Darwinism & Philosophy offers an inherently fascinating series of essays by knowledgeable scholars on the significant and continuing philosophical potential of Charles Darwin's principles of evolutionary biology. Included are "Materialism, Actualism, and Science: What's Modern about Modern Science?" by Peter McLauglin (University of Heidelberg, Germany); "Evolution, Paleontology, and Metaphysics" by David Oldroyd (University of New South Wales, Australia); "Darwinism's Multiple Ontologies" by David Depew (University of Iowa, USA); "Darwinism: Neither Biologistic nor Metaphysical" by Bernd Graefrath (University of Essen, German), and thirteen other contributors organized into four general sections: "What Kind of Science is Darwinian Biology, and What Are Its Ontological Presuppositions"; "Is a Non-Naturalist Interpretation of Darwinism Possible?"; "What is the Epistemological Relevance of Darwinism?"; and "Darwinism and the Place of the Human". Also available in a hardcover edition (0268030723, $70.00), Darwinism & Philosophy is a seminal body of work that is an essential contribution to the fields of Evolutionary Studies and Philosophy.
