Summary expansion
Whereas the two approaches are usually defended or criticized on the basis that they are dangerous for our vision of ourselves, this book takes a different perspective: it questions the acuteness of these approaches. Darwinian theory is not like a dangerous wolf, hunting for our self-image. Far from it, in the case of the two analogical applications addressed in this book, Darwinian theory is shown to behave more like a disoriented sheep in wolfs clothing. Contents: 1. Light will be thrown; 2. Darwinian principles; 3. The origin of novelty; 4. The argument from guided variation; 5. The units of culture; 6. Memes of minds
