ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "Darwin's Spectre: Evolutionary Biology in the Modern World," by Michael E. Rose. The author's thesis is simple and direct, people are still just beginning to understand the effects of evolution on human nature. Indeed, here are many implications of Charles Darwin's theory left for modern biologists to explore. The "nature of human nature," the topic of the last chapter of the book is too awesome a place to start with. The first two chapters therefore lay out them background from which the theory of evolution originated, and then describe some of its uses in practice.
