Salvucci emphasizes the importance of moving away from simplistic models of market economy, such as those of Smith and Malthus that inspired Darwin to more integrative approaches suitable for analysis of the diverse interactions between different life forms that are central to evolution Salvucci, Finally, Baquero and Moya address the problem of intelligibility of complex microbial systems by turning to the ideas of Wittgenstein and advocate the development of complex models that will be commensurate with the complexity of life Baquero and Moya, The philosophical aspect of today's evolutionary biology is especially fascinating.
Clearly, we are moving away from the rigid positivist views that dominated rational thinking in Darwin's day and inevitably influenced his thought to a much richer, dynamic philosophical framework of incessant change heavily affected by chance that reverberates with the post-modern thought of the twentieth century but also harks back to the great pre-Socratic philosophers of Greece, Democritus, Parmenides, Heraclites, and Empedocles Darwin, ; Dobzhansky, ; Huxley, It is our hope that in this collection of articles, the interested reader finds a rich rhizome of ideas that not only summarize the key developments of evolutionary biology in the first decade of the twenty-first century but also might presage some of the directions it will take in the decades to come.

They believe that: it was only selection that brought determinism and directionality into the process of evolution all evolutionarily consequential heritable changes were extremely small in scale the principle of gradualism that was staunchly defended by Darwin himself natural selection was the only important factor that shaped the evolving phenotypes and genotypes, driving in particular the emergence of biological complexity the history of all life forms, at least in principle, could be adequately described by a single Tree of Life following the famous sole illustration in the Origin Dobzhansky, ; Huxley, References Aravind L.
