This collection of essays is eclectic, covering certain political, ethical, cultural, and philosophical topics. But running through all the material is the evolutionary-naturalistic perspective stated in the opening essay, which gives the book its title. Another emphatic feature is a focus on the Western cultural outlook, as the context in which the large number of topics is viewed. This focus is important as a way of re-affirming the distinctive character of Western intellectual and cultural history, at a time when that character is, arguably, not sufficiently recognised and appreciated. Authors referred to include Aristotle, Shakespeare, Voltaire, and Sartre.

Keywords: Politics, ethics, culture, philosophy, evolution, naturalism, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Sartre, cultural criticism, neo-darwinism, liberalism, literature, society, socialism, welfare state, liberty, equality, fraternity, rationality, genius, morality, causality, isaiah berlin, determinism, emotivism, Kant, materialism, schopenhauer, spinoza, historicism, dawkins, darwin
