Biology, Evolution, and Human Nature by Timothy H. Goldsmith, William F. Zimmerman


Biology, Evolution, and Human Nature by Timothy H. Goldsmith, William F. Zimmerman

This book uses evolution as the unifying theme to trace the connections between levels of biological complexity from genes through nervous systems, animal societies, and human cultures. It examines the history of evolutionary theory from Darwin to the present, including: the impact of molecular biology and the emergence of evolutionary social theory.


This is a well written and illustrated introduction to modern biology, notably thorough and useful in the way it builds upon evolutionary explanation. --Edward O. Wilson, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University An excellent introduction to a body of knowledge and concepts that should be mastered by every educated person. --Steven Pinker, Massachusetts Institute of Technology The explanations of many difficult concepts are the best Ia ve seen. --Donald Kennedy, Standford University Truly a pleasure to read...The authors have a real knack for style and ease of expression... The concepts and ideas are clearly stated, well developed, and easily understood. --Charles Mallery, University of Miami This is a remarkable book. --Martin Daley, McMaster University This is a superb book - highly engaging, extremely well written, and well stocked with fascinating information. --David M. Buss, University of Texas -- Austin

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
