Summary
In setting out to answer his central question "Is evolution progressive?", Dawkins illustrates the human biases that continue to muddle our understanding of just what evolutionary 'progress' means; from early Victorian influences, to contemporary scientific texts which uncritically invoke 'evolutionary scales' and notions of 'higher' and 'lower' organisms. In turn, Dawkins demonstrates the 'human chauvinistic' definition of progress, and why, if progress is defined from this point of view, it becomes easy to deny any progressive elements to evolution. In response, Dawkins argues that if we use a more biologically sensible definition of progress, evolution can indeed be shown to be progressive in a very important sense.
