Alas, Poor Darwin : Arguments Against Evolutionary Psychology by Steven Rose

The counter argument to biological determinism. This highly controversial book offers the first comprehensible critique of the most popular scientific theory of the late 20th century Evolutionary Psychology. Based on Darwins theory of evolution and natural selection, Evolutionary Psychology claims that its all in our genes. Richard DawkinsThe Selfish Gene, Edward O. WilsonsConsilience, and Steven PinkersThe Language Instincthave all become bestsellers, framing popular debate on human life and development. Today, however, many biologists and social scientists contest this new biological determinism, showing that Evolutionary Psychology rests on shaky empirical evidence and flawed premises. In this provocative work Hilary and Steven Rose gather together the most eminent and outspoken critics of this ideology, who present a new perspective which acknowledges the complexity of life by placing at its center the living organism, rather than the gene.
