Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"It is a concise introduction to evolutionary epistemology and thus serves the growing philosophy of biology discipline well. It is the first book-length work written specifically to introduce students and scholars to the field of evolutionary epistemology and its philosophical ramifications." -- David Edward Shaner

This books aims to outline the scientific (biological) foundations of evolutionary epistemology, and to discuss its implications for humankind. Wuketits covers all aspects of evolutionary epistemology, including its empirical foundations and its philosophical and anthropological consequences, providng an accessible introduction with a minimum of jargon.

Franz M. Wuketits is Professor of Philosophy of Science at the University of Vienna, Austria and Lecturer of Philosophy of Biology at the University of Graz, Austria.
