Darwin did not just move biology forward. What Darwin accomplished was the demonstration that top down explanations cannot pass the test of scientific rigor. This is important for the entire enterprise of science, not only Biology. This anthology goes a long way to demonstrate this, especially the lesson Darwin has taught cosmologists. Fine-tuning has made it tempting to infer design in the formation of the universe, but thankfully mainstream physicists have avoided that weak intellectual escape. This anthology is wonderful because of the treatment of Darwin's primary contribution, and the snowballing impact of his triumph for the scientific endeavor.

Excellent and thoughtful contributors and well edited. Darwin from every point of view except those who blindly deny evolution. A reference for schools.
