Details of the book
Biology Under the Influence: Dialectical Essays on Ecology, Agriculture, and Health
Author:

Lewontin, Richard C.; Levins, Richard

Title:

Biology Under the Influence: Dialectical Essays on Ecology, Agriculture, and Health

ISBN:

In this major collection of essays, Lewontin and Levins range from the Human Genome Project and evolutionary psychology to Cuban agriculture. Throughout, their work is illuminated by an insistence on a dialectical understanding of biology from the molecular to the socio-ecological. In rejecting reductionist understandings, they offer important insights into how biology--and science in general--could be reconceptualized in the service of human liberation. - Steven Rose, emeritus professor of biology, Open University, United Kingdom
