Product Details



“Provides one of the clearest, most well-reasoned sets of arguments for why evolution is and must be approached from the evidence and not from any prior religious or other position. The writing is superb, with apparently simple examples that explain essential aspects of evolution.” –Choice (reviewing Understanding Evolution)

“Myths die hard no matter how often they are refuted, and this splendid essay collection, edited by Numbers and Kampourakis, tackles many of the most prevalent and destructive myths about science…. The book’s real value lies in the way that each author not only refutes a myth, but traces its origins and points out why it has lasted so long; each brief, well-written essay–they average eight pages–gives the historical context and explains the relevant science.” – Publishers Weekly starred review (reviewing Newton’s Apple and other Myths about Science)

“This impressive volume – the first of its kind – explores some of the most pressing issues in the philosophy of biology from the perspective of biology education … . [It] is intended for biology teachers, undergraduate students of biology and philosophy of biology, curriculum developers and philosophers of biology. … each chapter offers an extensive literature review, which would be of tremendous help to anyone looking to explore further the area of focus. … Overall, the book makes valuable contributions.” – Science & Education (reviewing The Philosophy of Biology)
