The triple helix : gene, organism, and environment by Richard C Lewontin( Book )

26 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Triple Helix, Lewontin exposes some of the common and troubling misconceptions that misdirect and stall our understanding of biology and evolution." "The central message of this book is that we will never fully understand living things if we continue to think of genes, organisms, and environments as separate entities, each with its distinct role to play in the history and operation of organic processes. Here Lewontin shows that an organism is a unique consequence of both genes and environment, of both internal and external features. Rejecting the notion that genes determine the organism, which then adapts to the environment, he explains that organisms, influenced in their development by their circumstances, in turn create, modify, and choose the environment in which they live."--Jacket

It ain't necessarily so : the dream of the human genome and other illusions by Richard C Lewontin( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these essays from the New York Review of Books, several of which are here updated with new epilogues, Richard Lewontin demystifies some of the most controversial issues in the life sciences today. On topics ranging from Darwin to Dolly the sheep, including biological determinism, heredity and natural selection, evolutionary psychology and altruism, sex surveys, cloning and the Human Genome Project, he offers both sharp criticisms of the overweening pride of scientists, especially those who have mistaken their social prejudices for scientific facts, and lucid expositions of the exact state of scientific knowledge. In each case, he casts an eye on the temptation to overstate the power of biology to explain everything we want to know about ourselves."--Jacket

Biology under the influence : dialectical essays on ecology, agriculture, and health by Richard C Lewontin( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we understand the world? While some look to the heavens for intelligent design, others argue that it is determined by information encoded in DNA. Science serves as an important activity for uncovering the processes and operations of nature, but it is also immersed in a social context where ideology influences the questions we ask and how we approach the material world. Biology Under the Influence: Dialectical Essays on the Coevolution of Nature and Society breaks from the confirms of determinism, offering a dialectical analysis for comprehending a dynamic social and natural world. In Bi
