Recommend: Lewontin’s “The Triple Helix”

In Uncategorized on March 29, 2010 by Lynn Chiu

Hi all,

Coming up the week after the next is my section on the Organism/Environment debate.  We will focus on the three themes introduced in the first three chapters of Richard Lewontin’s important little book: “The Triple Helix” (amazon link) and connect them with arguments for and against niche construction.

We are going to cover three out of the four chapters of the book, which is 70 pages long. Lewontin’s book is highly accessible to those without any background in biology or philosophy. Andre and I highly recommend this book, if you order it now, it’ll be in your hands by the time we discuss it!

End of advertisement, back to work! Have a great spring break!

Best,

Lynn
