This coming Tuesday the Summer of Evolutionary Mythology closes with an interview with evolutionary biologist John O. Reiss that bookends this series of posts. Hope you enjoyed these extracts from Myths of Evolution - I should probably leave it there for now, and concentrate on getting the draft manuscript completed.
Thoughts on the kind of work I'm doing in this book would be most welcome, even if you're not really familiar with the subject material. Does this kind of critical approach to evolutionary theory interest you? Are these essays too complicated to follow? Did you learn something new from reading them? Please share your thoughts in the comments!
Also: please help me refine my subtitle. I was going to use Scientific Metaphor and the Nature of Life but it's been pointed out to me that "metaphor" is a pretty academic word. I'm now thinking Revealing the Nature of Life is a better subtitle. Thoughts on this also welcome!
