Each chapter provides a distillation of ideas in Mayr’s long career and gives ample food for thought about evolutionary issues and often highlights disagreements within biology about certain points such as the factors which caused Australopithecus to develop into Homo.

It is entirely refreshing in its treatment of creationism–briefly mentioned and quickly dismissed; the reader does not have to slog through a chapter that seems to be otherwise requisite in popular treatments on evolutionary theory published in the United States. Mayr’s voice suddenly becomes strident when he discusses the improbability of intelligent and technologically advanced extraterrestrial life. While I agree with his assessment that it is of a vanishingly small probability that such life can be found in our galaxy, I was disappointed that Mayr did not address how the unlikely discovery of extraterrestrial neighbors might alter evolutionary thought.
Rather than address this, Mayr seems to have an axe to grind against the space program and SETI, launching into a screed against these programs as if funding of space exploration diminishes biological discovery. While this may be the case, Mayr does not address this as a policy or funding issue, instead focussing on SETI and the then-failure of the Mars exploration program.
Highly recommended, just gloss over the final chapter. Mayr makes this very clear and deserves many stars just for acknowledging it, and by attempting to describe the different processes by which biologists attempt to explain things.
This is more of a collection of essays than a long argument in favor of a particular thesis — but provides some useful insight into how evolutionary biology works, from someone who was fairly central to the construction of the discipline.
There are some missteps — one chapter arguing against reductionism purely on the straw grounds that reductionists break down systems into components but do not consider interactions between those components. The example is literally and sincerely given, that a hammer cannot be understood by splitting it into a head and a handle without understanding how they interact, therefore no reductionism! This was so stupid that I did not continue reading for quite some time. Mayr was the one of foremost scholars of evolutionary biology since Darwin.
In this collection of essays, published just months before his death at the age ofMayr discusses why Biology is a science different from all others, and why Darwin’s Theory of Evolution by means of Natural Selection is actually 5 theories that can be independently tested. It is this observation that goes a long way to understanding the difficulties in the acceptance of Darwin’s work. Mayr was a scientist of great i Mayr was the one of foremost scholars of evolutionary biology since Darwin.
Mayr was a scientist of great intellect and equally great ego deservedlywell known for his statement “I’m not dogmatic; I’m simply right. Mayr lays out his vision of a philosophy of science as it concerns biology. In doing so, he provides clear and concise refutations of a number of philosophies that other authors have put forward. Mayr occasionally could be accused of making an argument from authority; however, one could say that he’s earned the right to make those arguments.
It should be noted that this work draws heavily on prior works of Mayr’s and as such serves mostly as a primer or condensed description of his philosophy. A really incredible book.
Ernst Mayr is quite a smart scientist and an excellent philosopher. Philosophers of science as well as physicists have a lot to learn from this text.

His work contributed to the conceptual revolution that led to the modern evolutionary synthesis of Mendelian genetics, systematics, and Darwinian evolution, and to the development of the biological species concept. Although Charles Darwin and others posited that multiple species could evolve from a single common unicq, the mechanism by which this occurred was not understood, creating the species problem. Ernst Mayr approached the problem with a new definition for the concept of species.
In his book Systematics and the Origin of Species he wrote that a species is not just a group of morphologically similar individuals, but a group that can breed only among themselves, excluding all others. When populations within a species become isolated by geography, feeding strategy, mate selection, or other means, they may start to differ from other populations through genetic drift and natural selection, and over time may evolve into new species.
The most significant and rapid genetic reorganization occurs in extremely small ernxt that have been isolated as on islands.

His theory of peripatric speciation a more precise form of allopatric speciation which he advancedbased on his work on birds, is still considered a leading mode of speciation, and was the theoretical underpinning for the theory of punctuated equilibrium, proposed by Niles Eldredge and Stephen Jay Gould. Mayr is sometimes credited with inventing modern philosophy of biology, particularly the part related to evolutionary biology, which he distinguished from physics due to its introduction of natural history into science.
