Darwin’s Legacy

John Dupré

Oxford University Press

Countless features of human evolution cannot be explained in detail by Charles Darwin's theory, as abstract models are more represented than the tiny part of the totality. Scientific works are, however, being developed, and this is one of the positive sides of the book, taking into account the power of genes on evolution through scientific methodologies. Science and culture play differing roles on the evolutionary perspective of humans, as various studies such as those that deal with fossils are considered. Although science has not told all the important things to understand about the world, the explanations and satisfaction of having known something takes away the ignorance. Still, there are religious and superstitious mythologies that influence human culture but this philosophy is argued as part of human evolution.
