Title Review of Susan Oyama, Ontogeny of information: developmental systems and evolution
Date 2001
Description Susan Oyama's book thoroughly deserved reprinting. This is an exciting and engaging work that is still timely 15 years after its initial publication. Some of the text of the new edition is revised, and Oyama has added a new Preface and an Afterword. The new Foreword by Richard Lewontin provides a succinct and sympathetic overview of the book and constitutes a rousing endorsement for the contemporary relevance of Oyama's work to biology.
