Description - Evolutionism and Its Critics by Stephen K. Sanderson
Evolutionism and Its Critics is a critical history of evolutionary theories in the socialsciences and a defense of them against their many critics. Sanderson deconstructs not only the wide array of social evolutionary theories, but the criticisms of the antievolutionists. Deconstructing evolutionary theories means laying bare their fundamental epistemological, methodological, conceptual, and theoretical assumptions and principles. Deconstructing antievolutionism means showing just where and how the critics have, for the most part, gone wrong.But Evolutionism and Its Critics aims to reconstruct as well as deconstruct and does thisby building on the shoulders of past giants of evolutionary theorizing a comprehensiveevolutionary interpretation of human society based on abundant scientific and historicalevidence.
