Fodor & Piatelli-Palmarini "What Darwin Got Wrong"

This is intended as a continuation of this thread from RD.net.

Boston Review has published a review of the book by Ned Block and Philip Kitcher. In addition to the scientific errors that have already been discussed, they detail how Fodor and Piatelli-Palmarini's claims fail on philosophical grounds, as well:

Of course, the reviews have not all been entirely negative. With friends like these....
