In recent years, the relation between contemporary academic philosophy and evolutionary theory has become ever more active, multifaceted, and productive. The connection is an active two-way street. In one direction, philosophers of biology make significant contributions to theoretical discussions about the nature of evolution. In the other direction, a broader group of philosophers appeal to Darwinian selection in an attempt to illuminate traditional philosophical puzzles. In grappling with these questions, this interdisciplinary collection includes cutting-edge examples from both directions of traffic. The 30 contributions, written exclusively for this volume, are divided into six sections: _The Nature of Selection_, _Evolution and Information_, _Human Nature_, _Evolution and Mind_, _Evolution and Ethics_, and _Evolution, Aesthetics, and Art_. Many of the contributing philosophers and psychologists are international leaders in their fields.
