There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day.
We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas.
We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity. Eva Jablonka is a geneticist known for her work in epigenetic inheritance. Born in in Poland , she emigrated to Israel in In her paper Soft inheritance: challenging the modern synthesis she came to the conclusion that epigenetic Lamarckian and saltational processes have a role in evolution and neo-Darwinism does not offer a satisfactory theoretical framework for evolutionary biology as it does not acknowledge the evidence for these evolutionary processes.

Enter Jablonka and Lamb, who provide a thoughtful review of the recent molecular literature and suggest a number of potential consequences. Advances in knowledge, especially at the molecular level, have enhanced general awareness and interest in epigenetics and the evolution of systems that store and transmit information and put any of the authors' speculations on a more solid basis.
This paperback edition contains a new Preface that sets out the major changes in the scientific world and in the authors' own thinking that have occurred since the book was published. A new Appendix provides a selected bibliography of the many books and articles about epigenetic inheritance and its role in evolution that have appeared since first publication.
