Abstract
The review concentrates on Fodor and Piattelli-Palmarini’s philosophical critique of adaptationism – one of the pillars of the theory of evolution. Their main objection refers to the explanatory weakness of Darwin’s theory, namely that it is unable to predict (and explain) what are the traits that natural selection acts on? Because of this the authors classify theory of evolution under the rubric: “natural history”, and they deny that it depicts a law of nature.
