Jay Odenbaugh, Science Review from previous edition Peter Godfrey-Smith's Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection is a dense and deep work on the foundations of evolutionary biology... Godfrey-Smith's book fruitfully forces us to think in new ways about evolution and natural selection.

Massimo Pigliucci, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection will be something to be reckoned with for anybody interested in the conceptual foundations of evolutionary theory and in the applicability of Darwinian ideas beyond the strict confines of biological evolution.
