Review of: Julian Huxley, Evolution: The Modern Synthesis—The Definitive Edition, with a New Forward by Massimo Pigliucci and Gerd B. Müller. MIT Press, 2010

Commentary

Abstract

Julian Huxley’s 1942 book Evolution: The Modern Synthesis is an historically important book which remains well worth reading. In this review I focus on Huxley’s debt to Richard Goldschmidt and Cyril Darlington. I discuss the conceptions of the genome developed by Goldschmidt and Darlington and their continuing relevance.
