about this item

Michael examines Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection, what the theory says, what it aims to explain, and how it manages to explain. Such an examination is necessary, he says, because everyone thinks they understand the theory perfectly, but there are so many divergent views about it that not everyone can be right. He covers the circularity argument; resolving the problem of circularity; Darwin's key argument for evolution by natural selection; explanation, causation, and counter-factuals; Philip Henry Gosse and the geographical knot; and the heritability of characteristics: the role of genetics and epigenetics.
