This book is a discourse on how biology, and especially the new developments in biology affect ethics. At first glance there is no connection at all. But in thinking of doing harm to a person, it is clearly ethically bad for a human to harm another.

This book is a discourse on how biology, and especially the new developments in biology affect ethics. But if a mosquito gives a human malaria or yellow fever, if a shark kills a swimmer, neither the mosquito or the shark cannot be held at fault. As Francisco Ayala says in chapter 8, 'humans are animals but a very distinct and unique kind of animal. Some of these differences are almost mechanical, such as walking upright.

Biology and the Foundatio. has been added to your Cart. Evolution is present in some essays, but the general effort of the contributors - 'to ground ethics in nature' - provides a profitable read on the important issues in biology and science, especially for biologists, philosophers and social scientists. There has been much attention devoted in recent years to the question of whether our moral principles can be related to our biological nature.

How can the discoveries made in the biological sciences play a role in a discussion on the foundation of ethics? This book responds to this question by examining how evolutionism can explain and justify the existence of ethical normativity and the emergence of particular moral systems. Written by a team of philosophers and scientists, the essays collected in this volume deal with the limits of evolutionary explanations, the justifications of ethics, and methodological issues concerning evolutionary accounts of ethics, among other topics. They offer deep insights into the origin and purpose of human moral capacities and of moral systems.
