In his Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection, Peter Godfrey-Smith makes
a helpful distinction between philosophy of science and philosophy of nature.
The intellectual target of philosophy of science is science itself: most critically,
trying to understand how and why science has been such a uniquely successful
mode of investigating the world. The intellectual target of philosophy of nature is
nature itself; the world in which we live (which, of course, includes humans and
their ...

numerous cases are quoted in which it is not clear whether they should be
regarded as examples of natural or of sexual selection. In many cases, the

agreement with the concept of Darwin that natural selection leads to fitter, that is,
better adapted populations. But the concept of fitness of populations has been
further extended.

is to discover patterns of relations among recorded phenomena, so that a few
principles can explain a large number of propositions concerning these

Self-organization and selection together play a key-role in these new
developments. One's interpretation of their respective explanatory functions is
indicative of the more, or less, "neo-Darwinian" position one occupies in the field
of evolutionary thinking. Indeed, ever since the neo-Darwinian interpretation,
genetic variations and evolution of populations by natural selection have been
considered as the conceptual and explanatory core of the biological theory of
evolution: variation ...

In 1937, the geneticist Theodosius Dobzhansky published Genetics and the
Origin of Species, which synthesized all that was known of genetics at the time
and showed that it was consistent with Darwinian natural selection. In 1942, Ernst
Mayr published Systematics and the Origin of Species, which addressed the
problem of natural selection in wild populations and laid the groundwork for his
allopatric speciation model (see chapter 3). And in 1944 (written in the late 1930s
