In The Resurgence of Evolutionary Biology Terry Hoy charts the intersection between political theory and the intellectual debate over human evolution. The book deals with the contemporary interpretation of Darwinism as an apology for racism, imperialism, and capitalism. Hoy argues that this perspective underlies the contemporary debates between proponents of both genetic and environmental determinants of behavior. In response to several leading thinkers in the field-principally Edward Wilson, Stephen Gould and R. C. Lewontin-Hoy presents the neo-Darwinian synthesis of Edwin Mayr as a mediation between these two schools of thought. This concise work is essential reading for scholars of political theory and philosophy, and anyone interested in seeking to understand the rise and fall-and rise again-of Darwinism and the contemporary political relevance of Aristotelian-Darwinian naturalism.
