    The explanatory role of natural selection is one of the long-term debates in evolutionary biology. Nevertheless, the consensus has been slippery because conceptual confusions and the absence of a unified, formal causal model that integrates different explanatory scopes of natural selection. In this study we attempt to examine two questions: (i) What can the theory of natural selection explain? and (ii) Is there a causal or explanatory model that integrates all natural selection explananda? For the first question, we argue that (...)

    In this paper, I respond to arguments proposed by Brunnander in this journal issue concerning my position regarding the Creative View of natural selection. Brunnander argues that the Creative View we defend does not serve to answer William Paley’s question because Paley’s question is “why there are complex things rather than simple ones” and natural selection cannot answer this question. Brunnander’s arguments for defend a Non-creative View of natural selection. Here I claim that Brunnander’s arguments for are mistaken and I (...)
