edited by Paul Thompson
Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 1995. 444 pages.

From the publisher: "This book explores historical and current discussion of the relevance of evolutionary theory to ethics. The historical section conveys the intellectual struggle that took place within the framework of Darwinism from its inception up to the work of GC Williams, WD Hamilton, RD Alexander, RL Trivers, EO Wilson, R Dawkins, and others. The contemporary section discusses ethics within the framwork of evoltuionary theory as enriched by the works of biologists such as those mentioned above."
