From time to time TOF has touched upon the peculiarities of the various theories of evolution: Lamarck, Blythe, Darwin/Wallace, Mendel, Kimura, Shapiro, et al. Prior posts include:
- De evolutione evolutionis
- Happy Birthday, dear Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de la Marck, Happy Birthday to you!
- The End of Darwinism Evolution
- the persistence of teleology in evolutionary thought (apparently tworked off Fodor, who dissed natural selection precisely because it was inescapably teleological)
- the importance of the environment, including the organism's own behavior at shaping evolution
- that genetics and molecular biology may be more important than natural selection
