About the book:

This is a collection of classic and contemporary writing selections from biologists and philosophers, from Darwin to Dawkins. Editorial passages provide historical context and introduce the debates over evolution. The discussion centres on whether evolution is progressive and whether life on earth has meaning in the cosmos at large. The book reflects the diversity of metaphors that have been used to depict evolutionary processes and the tension between science and religion. It also provides a grounding in evolutionary biology and the science of life. The written selections are accompanied by fine art and biological illustrations, and sometimes poetry. The format is similar to that of "From Gaia to Selfish Genes", Barlow's first anthology, which won an award for overall excellence of design.
