Summary

Evolution and the Levels of Selection. By Samir Okasha. Clarendon Press, Oxford, 2006. 275 pp. $55, £30. ISBN 9780199267972.

Considering conceptual and foundational aspects of the debates over levels of selection--natural selection acting on genes, individuals, groups, or species--Okasha pays particular attention to effects that filter from one level up or down to others.
