Abstract

Prolegomena 1.vp:CorelVentura 7.0 »practical« affair (p. 250). Against Qui- ne and Rorty, Williams thinks that knowledge and, consequently, epistemo- logy is and should be normatively sig- nificant. In that light, we should accept his arguments for general thesis (p. 254): »Contextualism gives us a picture of knowledge and justification that stays close to the phenomenology of everyday epistemic practices, that articulates a fallibilist conception of rationality, that is friendly to the socially distributed and historically situated character of knowl- edge, and that offers a principled es- cape from traditional sceptical conun- drums. This is why we should adopt it.« Kristijan Krkaè Faculty of Philosophy of the Society of Jesus, Jordanovac 110, HR-10000 Zagreb [email protected] Hilary Rose and Steven Rose (eds.), Alas, Poor Darwin. Arguments Againts Evolutionary Psychology, Vintage, London 2001, 292 pp. Zbornik radova Alas, Poor Darwin. Ar- guments Against Evolutionary Psychology, prema rijeèima njegovih urednika, femi- nistièke sociologinje Hilary Rose i neu- roznanstvenika Stevena Rosea, idejno je zaèet poèetkom 1998. kao sintetièko djelo »mnogih glasova« iz razlièitih znanstvenih disciplina i intelektualnih podruèja okupljenih u zajednièkoj kri- tici evolucijske psihologije (EP). Djelo je prvi put objavljeno u Velikoj Britaniji 2000., a sadr®i petnaest izvornih znan- stvenih radova u kojima se iz razlièitih misaonih kutova kritizira »loša teorija« EP. Prema urednicima, EP je dosad naj- utjecajnija znanstvena disciplina koja se napaja na najprodornijem od suvre- menih »intelektualnih mitova« izraslom iz darvinistièke evolucijske teorije. Ro- seovi definiraju EP kao najveæim dije- lom anglo-amerièki fenomen, kao disci- plinu koja »tvrdi da mo®e objasniti sve aspekte ljudskog ponašanja«, kulture i društva na temelju univerzalnih osobina uma koje su se evolucijski oblikovale za djetinjstva naše vrste prije, otprilike, 100–600 tisuæa godina.
