Evolutionary Ethics and Contemporary Biology by Giovanni Boniolo

Book Description

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.

Evolutionary Ethics and Contemporary Biology by Giovanni Boniolo Evolutionary Ethics and Contemporary Biology, Paperback (November 2009)

This book examines how evolutionism can justify the existence of ethical normativity.

On Scientific representations by Giovanni Boniolo On Scientific representations, Hardback (April 2007)

Scientific concepts, laws, theories and models are representations but are uniquely different. This book explores each within an original, philosophical framework rooted in the Kantian tradition. Through a revisionist historical approach, it shows how this tradition helps us rethink contemporary issues in epistemology and the philosophy of science.
