A Review of The Machines of Evolution and the Scope of Meaning

For a recent issue of Critical Inquiry, Elizabeth Miller reviews The Machines of Evolution and the Scope of Meaning by Gary Tomlinson. Click here to learn more about the book. Click here to read the full review. An excerpt appears below:

“Tomlinson brings a humanist perspective to the biological and evolutionary debates in which his book engages not through an assumption of human singularity or superiority but rather through an insistence on the fundamental importance of meaning as a category of inquiry… Scholars of the arts, literature, and the humanities—those who toil in the fields of meaning—will nonetheless appreciate the book’s rigorous attention to the question of what meaning is, exactly, and how far it extends.”
