Larval Evolution

And I now caught this post by Levi about evolution, where he makes some good points against Fodor and his ilk in their claims about evolution. (I will assume that most of you know the dustup over this; otherwise, see the last LRB for this discussion.) I must admit that I prefer that Fodor did publish his book: after reading for years how he was standing up for the highest clarity and rationality against the forces of evil that people I read represented, he has showed far more hubris than anything you’ll find in Sokal’s book on the science wars.
