Summary
"In Darwin's Legacy, Dupre offers a philosopher's view of evolution while examining how evolutionary theory affects our definition of human nature and our understanding of human diversity. He rejects recent attempts to reconcile evolution and theology, and takes issue with the arguments put forward by evolutionary psychologists, who have attempted to use the theory of evolution to illuminate aspects of human culture and behaviour as diverse as language, morality, sexuality, and art. Instead he argues that evolutionary theory is key to establishing a picture devoid of supernatural forces, in which human origins can be understood in a fully naturalistic way."--Jacket
