Do You Believe in Sociobiology and Law? - Chapter 5

29 London Review of Books No. 22 (15 Nov. 2007) has further responses to Jerry Fodor's jab at ultra-Darwinism. The attempted rebuttals are of diverse kinds. See Letters at id. The rebutters (people) include Jerry Coyne, Philip Kitcher, Daniel Dennett (of course), Steven Rose, Colin Tudge, and Kit Evans (on an architectural point -- spandrels v. pendentives).

I assume -- I hope -- Fodor will respond. We have the makings of an interesting debate here (but perhaps Fodor will replace references to spandrels with references to pendentives?).
