Evolution Science and Ethics in the Third Millennium

The book aims to revitalise the interdisciplinary debate about evolution science and substantiate the idea that science can provide a rational and robust framework for understanding morality. It also traces pathways for knowledge-based choices to be made about directions for future long-term biological evolution and cultural development in view of adaptation to expected, probable and possible future and ecological sustainability of our planetary environment

The authors discusses ethical challenges associated with the major biosocial sources of human variation:  individual variation, inter-personal variation, inter-group variation, and inter-generational variation.

The book approaches the long-term challenges of the human species in a holistic way. Researchers will find an extensive discussion of the key theoretical scientific aspects of the relationship between evolution and morality. Policy makers will find information that can help them better understand from where we are coming and inspire them to make choices and take actions in a longer-term perspective. The general public will find food for thoughts.
