Featuring an introduction by Stephen Jay Gould, "Genetics and the Origin of Species" presents the first edition of Dobzhansky's groundbreaking and now classic inquiry into what has emerged as the most important single area of scientific inquiry in the twentieth century: biological theory of evolution. Genetics and the Origin of Species went through three editions (1937, 1941, and 1951) in which the importance accorded natural selection changed radically

The biology of ultimate concern by Theodosius Dobzhansky( Book )

"I wish to examine some philosophical implications of certain biological and anthropological findings and theories. This book lays no claim to being a treatise either on philosophical biology or on biological philosophy. It consists of essays on those particular aspects of science which have been particularly influential in the formation of my personal credo"--Page 11

Genetic diversity and human equality by Theodosius Grigorievich Dobzhansky( Book )

13 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of equality often, if not frequently, bogs down in confusion and apparent contradictions; equality is confused with identity, and diversity with inequality. It would seem that the easiest way to discredit the idea of equality is to show that people are innately, genetically, and, therefore, irremediably diverse and unlike. The snare is, of course, that human equality pertains to the rights and to the sacredness of life of every human, not to bodily or even mental characteristics. Thus, the defenders of equality become entangled in the same snare when they attempt to minimize or deny human genetic diversity. They overlook the fact, or fail to understand, that diversity is an observable fact of nature, while that of equality is an ethical commandment. At least in priciple, equality can be withheld from, or bestowed upon, members of a society or citizens of a state regardless of how similar or diverse they are. Inequality is also not biologically given but is rather a socially imposed prescription. Using evolutionary genetics of race, the author goes on to develop his thesis explaining where this research leaves off and where the realm of moral choice begins. (Author/RJ)

It is not often that one has the opportunity to send a public birthday greet­ ing to a friend and colleague of many years, and to congratulate him on having reached the age of reason. In fact it happens only once, and comes then as a surprise. Surely it was only a few years ago that we sat together at an International Genetics Congress in Ithaca, and only yesterday that we became members of the same department. The eighth floor of Schermerhorn Hall had a north end where the flies were and a south end furnished with mice, and in between, a seminar room and laboratory. There the distances were short and the doors open and the coffee pot busy. But it now appears that yesterday has fallen thirty years behind and that we have grown up. I find it interesting and appropriate that Dobzhansky's lifetime spans the period of maturation of the fields to which this volume is devoted. This is true in a chronological sense for his birth occurred in the same year, 1900, in which modern genetics began. The rediscovery of Mendel's princi­ ples and the interpretation of the nature of heredity and variation to which this event led were necessary prerequisites to the development of evolution­ ary biology as presented in this collection of essays
Heredity, race, and society by L. C Dunn( Book )

90 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important facts about human beings is that they are not all alike. "The hereditary endowment which each of us has," the authors say, "is strictly his own, not present in anybody else, unprecedented in the past, and almost certainly not repeatable in the future." Yet, if we are to survive, we must live in a world composed not only of differing individuals, but of differing groups. And if we are to adjust ourselves to such a world, the authors believe, we must understand what such differences mean, how they arise, how lasting they are likely to be, which of them are likely to determine our individual and group destinies. In particular, they say, we need to know what differences are inborn and permanent, which result from the kind of upbringing and education people receive--from conditions which we can change. In their book, Professors Dunn and Dobzhansky sort out the facts, and present the case of "nature and nurture," in clear, simple, thoroughly scientific terms"--Book.
