"Charles Darwin's permanent legacy is his broad, abstract theories of evolution and natural selection, theories which he tested against an astonishing array of natural history evidence in his writing. Mark Ridley uses a question and answer approach to explain how Darwin carefully tackled problems, and shows how the reader can understand Darwin's arguments by first working out what question Darwin had implicitly set himself to answer."--BOOK JACKET

The cooperative gene : how Mendel's demon explains the evolution of complex beings by Mark Ridley( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Why isn's all life pond-scum? Why are there multimillion-celled, long-lived monsters like us, built from tens of thousands of cooperating genes? Mark Ridley presents a new explanation of how complex large life forms like ourselves came to exist, showing that the answer to the greatest mystery of evolution for modern science is not the selfish gene; it is the cooperative gene." "In this thought-provoking book, Ridley breaks down how two major biological hurdles had to be overcome in order to allow living complexity to evolve: the proliferation of genes and gene-selfishness. Because complex life has more genes than simple life, the increase in gene numbers poses a particular problem for complex beings."--Jacket
