Publisher's Summary

In a book that is both groundbreaking and accessible, Daniel C. Dennett, whom Chet Raymo of The Boston Globe calls "one of the most provocative thinkers on the planet", focuses his unerringly logical mind on the theory of natural selection, showing how Darwin's great idea transforms and illuminates our traditional view of humanity's place in the universe. Dennett vividly describes the theory itself and then extends Darwin's vision with impeccable arguments to their often surprising conclusions, challenging the views of some of the most famous scientists of our day.

Potent Stuff

One of the best books on evolution I've ever read, it will likely transform the way you see the world forever. The chapter on Gould alone is worth getting this book for; it is an amazingly devastating critique of some of the most infamous and popular attempts made to contain the universal acid.
