Is Evolution Progressive?
In setting out to answer his central question "Is Evolution Progressive?",
Dawkins illustrates the human biases that continue to muddle our
understanding of just what evolutionary 'progress' means; from early
Victorian influences, to contemporary scientific texts which uncritically
invoke 'evolutionary scales' and notions of 'higher' and 'lower' organisms.
In turn, Dawkins demonstrates the 'human chauvinistic' definition of
progress, and why, if progress is defined from this point of view, it
becomes easy to deny any progressive elements to evolution. In response,
Dawkins argues that if we use a more biologically sensible definition of
progress, evolution can indeed be shown to be progressive in a very
important sense.
