Reviews

This important and controversial book will be hotly discussed by biologists.--Library Journal
An extremely readable and very provocative book.--New Scientist
The book successfully achieves the authors' goal of demonstrating by example the power and nature of the dialectical method. Its usefulness, however, extends well beyond this. The articles are intellectually challenging in content as well as method. And by collecting in one place articles on evolution, scientific analysis and the social dimensions of science--the book's three major divisions--the authors have provided a valuable tool for exploring the complexity and richness of biology... The Dialectical Biologist is certain to be controversial... This book is a rich source of understanding, and it will undoubtedly stimulate important discussion.--New York Times Book Review
