How do we understand the world While some look to the heavens for intelligent design others argue that it is determined by information encoded in DNA Science serves as an important activity for uncovering the processes and operations of nature but it is also immersed in a social context where ideology influences the questions we ask and how we approach the material world b Biology Under the Influence Dialectical Essays on the Coevolution of Nature and Society b breaks from the confirms of determinism offering a dialectical analysis for comprehending a dynamic social and natural world br br In b Biology Under the Influence b Richard Lewontin and Richard Levins provide a devastating critique of genetic determinism and reductionism within science while exploring a broad range of issues including the nature of science biology evolution the environment pubic health and dialectics They dismantle the ideology that attempts to naturalize social inequalities unveil the alienation of science and nature and illustrate how a dialectical position serves as a basis for grappling with historical developments and a world characterized by change b Biology Under the Influence b brings together the illuminating essays of two prominent scientists who work to demystify and empower the public s understanding of science and nature, Three eminent scientists analyze the scientific social and political roots of biological determinism, One of our most brilliant evolutionary biologists b Richard Lewontin b has also been a leading critic of those scientists and non scientists alike who would misuse the science to which he has contributed so much In i The Triple Helix i Lewontin the scientist and Lewontin the critic come together to provide a concise accessible account of what his work has taught him about biology and about its relevance to human affairs In the process he exposes some of the common and troubling misconceptions that misdirect and stall our understanding of biology and evolution The central message of this book is that we will never fully understand living things if we continue to think of genes organisms and environments as separate entities each with its distinct role to play in the history and operation of organic processes Here Lewontin shows that an organism is a unique consequence of both genes and environment of both internal and external features Rejecting the notion that genes determine the organism which then adapts to the environment he explains that organisms influenced in their development by their circumstances in turn create modify and choose the environment in which they live i The Triple Helix i is vintage Lewontin brilliant eloquent passionate and deeply critical But it is neither a manifesto for a radical new methodology nor a brief for a new theory It is instead a primer on the complexity of biological processes a reminder to all of us that living things are never as simple as they may seem, It Ain t Necessarily So combines sharp criticism of scientific claims with lucid expositions of the state of current scientific knowledge Among the subjects discussed are heredity natural selection and genetic determinism
