On the strength of Farina's discussion, Sterelny's new book involves a synthesis of the Niche Construction and Extended Mind Theses. New innovations evolve from historical, iterative processes. Extended, modeled, synthesized, and/or misled or dictated by the 1940s MS of neo-Darwinism past; especially in our concurrent pop-science or “evolutionary biology” lexicon and literature of today and beyond, worldwide! However, long after the automobile had made the horse and carriage obsolete and the association had faded, the concepts of each still defined one another; this synthesis is still present today. The automobile developed out of, and in opposition to, Early automobiles extended and adapted the accustomed 19th century understanding of locomotion. The essay was kind of spoiled for me, though, by the ending, in which Zimmer seems to buy into something he calls the “extended evolutionary synthesis”. Second, the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis event is being hosted by Konrad Lorenz Institute, where for years there have been discussions about self-organization. If we did all that, it wouldn't be a revolution — because it would embrace everything that is already in evolution — but would be what Pigliucci calls the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis. The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center Although walking on our extended hind limbs is the hallmark adaptation characterizing our species it nevertheless makes us vulnerable to a wide range of serious joint and soft tissue problems. These are all indicating advances in biology not in evolution. Kung feature prominently in this new book, his goal is much more ambitious: He has set out to synthesize all research findings on the evolutionary emergence of our species, and especially the ways in which humans came to raise their children. Having thus localized our species, Konner seeks to explain both why humans experience such extended periods of dependence and what implications this has for the ways in which humans behave toward their offspring. This is the picture that emerges from evo-devo, epigenetics, comparative genomics, and other developments that feed what some researchers are calling the Extended Synthesis of evolution theory. In July 2008 the 'Altenberg 16' met to attempt a new 'extended evolutionary synthesis'. Book: Evolution - the Extended Synthesis Author: Massimo Pigliucci, Gerd B. We hear new expressions in biological evolution like, modern synthesis, punctuated equilibrium and modern synthesis extended. Some suggest it must be modified, like Gould when he suggests we tack on punctuated equilibrium, or at least extended.
