Darwin On Love book by David Loye  "Darwin On Love: The New Story of Evolution" [2007] by David Loye

Book II: "The Battle of The Books" [not yet published]
Book III: "Up Against The Paradigm" [not yet published]

"... in all these books by all these people, to whom in one way or another Darwin has been meaningful, we have been looking at a sampling of the higher order minds of the 20th century ... And is not the most unsettling message this? That no matter how brilliant we are, how well educated, how brave, strong, or independent-minded we think we are, the invisible power of the over-riding paradigm we've explored, which worldwide still enslaves practically all of us from birth to death, can lead us around like a dancing bear with a ring through its nose?"
— David Loye
