Sahotra Sarkar specializes in the history and philosophy ofscience and conservation biology; he helped develop the frameworkfor systematic conservation planning for the protection ofbiodiversity (as co-author, with Chris Margules, of SystematicConservation Planning). He also co-edited The Philosophy ofScience: An Encyclopedia and A Companion to the Philosophyof Biology. He is the author of Doubting Darwin?:Creationist Designs on Evolution (Blackwell), Genetics andReductionism, Molecular Models of Life, and Biodiversity and Environmental Philosophy. He is a professorof Philosophy and Integrative Biology at the University of Texas atAustin.
Sarkar deftly weaves the humanities and ecological science into a convincing argument that environmental conservation and management are social, economic and political, and thus philosophical and cultural, problems as much as they are ecological and biological ones; maybe even more so. Not only students of philosophy should read this book but also conservation biologists. It will enlighten them. Chris Margules AM, Conservation International
