Here is a lucid, witty introduction to evolution and what it means for our view of humanity, the natural world, and religion. Dupre explains the right and the wrong ways to understand evolution: in the latter category fall most of the claims of evolutionary psychology, of which Dupre gives a withering critique. He shows why the theory of evolution is one of the most important scientific ideas of all time, but makes clear that it can’t explain everything -- contrary to widespread popular belief, it has very little to tell us about the details of human nature and human behavior, such as language, culture, and sexuality. “Anyone who is interested in understanding what the theory of evolution can and can’t do will find this a compelling and enjoyable introduction.”
