Mutation, Randomness, and Evolution

Arlin Stoltzfus

  • Sets aside the raw materials and randomness doctrines, offering a new conception of variation as a difference-maker, based on rigorous theoretical and empirical results
  • Identifies bridging concepts with cross-cutting implications for population genetics, molecular evolution, evo-devo, and self-organization
  • Provides valuable historical and philosophical perspectives on theories of causation, explanatory paradigms, the Modern Synthesis, and the molecular revolution
