This book would be an ideal resource for students looking to learn what the implications of evolutionary biology have been. I enjoyed reading The Theory of Evolution and Its Impact, and would recommend it to anyone with a serious interest in evolutionary biology or the philosophy of biology. I also note that this volume, as professional and scholarly as it was, was a consistently interesting, even fun, book to read. anyone interested in evolution will discover something genuinely new in these pages.

Dordrecht: Springer 2012. 00 (eBook ISBN: 97888-470-1974-4) In The Theory of Evolution and Its Impact, Aldo Fasolo has assembled an impressively broad collection of historical and philosophical essays, each exploring the influence of evolutionary theory on other academic subject areas. Despite these minor faults, I enjoyed reading The Theory of Evolution and Its Impact, and would recommend it to anyone with a serious interest in evolutionary biology or the philosophy of biology.

Abstract To understand the status of Theory of Evolution, highly multidisciplinary approaches are needed. Thus, the book moves from the historical and philosophical roots, to follow a long and winding road, passing from anthropology, to linguistics, genetics, developmental biology, neuroscience, cognitive studies, to nd a nal lap on today theories. The inescapable conclusion, quoting the contribution of the philosopher Michael Ruse, is that in fty years or a hundred years we will still have the theory of the Origin around.

Many scientists and philosophers of science have described evolution as fact and theory, a phrase which was used as the title of an article by paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould in 1981. He describes fact in science as meaning data, not absolute certainty but "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent". A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of such facts.

Year 2009 was the triumph of Darwin as a global superstar, spinning from the pop icon to the actual understanding to what make him a great innovator, able to give a turn to whole modern culture. Does all this activity mean evolution has lost its ability to excite fear and opposition? After such a deluge of books, conferences, reviews, gadgets, what is today our  vision on theory of Evolution and its Impact? These are the questions asked at an inter-academy conference held in Torino (May 27-29, 2010) among the Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften.  The present book collects the contributions from the meeting, mixing styles, arguments, topics, history and philosophy of science, modern biology and epistemology . This kind of inter-disciplinary approach may appear erratic, but it conveys flashes of lights on the changing scene where the theory of evolution plays. This is in line with the idea to reopen the file of the Two Cultures, looking at shared problems, which are not yet really the Third Culture invoked by Charles Percy Snow half a century ago, but they can foster it, at least in such a pivotal domain as evolution. According to the philosopher Michael Ruse, the conclusion is “that in fifty years or a hundred years we will still have the theory of the Origin around. Great, precisely because it does not stand still, but remakes itself and grows and changes by virtue of the fact that it gives such a terrific foundation. Is Darwinism past its sell-by date? Not by a long chalk yet!”
