The Institute is pleased to announce that Denis Walsh’s new book Organisms, Agency, and Evolution (Cambridge, 2015) has just been published. Professor Denis Walsh is also editor of Naturalism, Evolution and Mind (Cambridge, 2001) and the co-editor of Evolutionary Biology: Conceptual, Ethical and Religious Issues (with R. Paul Thompson, Cambridge, 2015).

Prof. Walsh in Organisms, Agency, and Evolution shows “that the principal defect of the Modern Synthesis resides in its rejection of Darwin’s organismal perspective, and argues for ‘situated Darwinism’: an alternative, organism-centre conception of evolution that prioritises organisms as adaptive agents. His book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of evolutionary biology and the philosophy of biology.”
