Disputes the current neo-Darwinian theory of evolution while suggesting alternative patterns of evolutionary change. It presents some considerations and constraints that a new and more adequate theory must have. Discusses the importance of developmental mechanics on both the large-scale (macroevolutionary) and small-scale (microevolutionary) levels. Includes a range of contributions by important and sometimes controversial authors, among them Sir Karl Popper--one of the greatest living scientific philosophers, and Howard Temin--a Nobel Laureate.
