Life is amazing in its extreme variety, which is full of seemingly contradictory manifestations. This is particularly true about three categories of phenomena, all of primary importance: - For many species, ours included, all individuals grow old with the passage of time; - On the contrary, individuals of many species do not show differences in vitality between subjects of various ages; - The diseases that afflict living beings, and our species in particular, are numberless; - However, in the wild, the normal condition, which is by far the most usual, is to be healthy; - The ways in which living beings mate, and so recombine their genes, are amazingly various; - On the other hand, many species reproduce asexually with an equally stunning variety. Yet, these phenomena can be studied and analyzed by a single main tool, as all have been shaped and influenced by evolution. This book expresses some arguments about their interpretation in the light of this unifying and clarifying theory.
