Summary:
Over a century ago, the Social Darwinists appropriated Darwin's name but left most of his theory behind. "The Evolution of Everything" describes the struggles behind Darwin's theory of evolution and the schemes of those who misapplied it. It also shows why a more nuanced reading of that work--especially the concept of selective pressures--helps us understand many natural, social, and economic processes.

Over a century ago, the Social Darwinists appropriated Darwin's name but left most of his theory behind. "The Evolution of Everything" describes the struggles behind Darwin's theory of evolution and the schemes of those who misapplied it. It also shows why a more nuanced reading of that work--especially the concept of selective pressures--helps us understand many natural, social, and economic processes.
