Stephen J. Gould : the scientific legacy by Gian Antonio Danieli( )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This interdisciplinary volume debates the origin and working of human morality within the context of science as well as religion and philosophy. Experts from widely different backgrounds speculate how morality may have evolved, how it develops in the child, and what science can tell us about its working and origin. They also discuss how to deal with the age-old facts-versus-values debate, also known as the naturalistic fallacy. The implications of this exchange are enormous, as they may transform cherished views on if and why we are the only moral species
