"[A] stimulating collection of essays..." The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, Brendan Sweetman
"The book is highly recommended." Philosophy in Review
"It is a masterly exposition of the issue of design in the biological context ... It will serve as a useful reference work in the coming years."
This volume provides a comprehensive and even-handed overview of the debate concerning biological origins. This has been a controversial debate ever since Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859. Invariably the source of controversy has been design. In this unique survey leading figures in the debate argue for their respective positions in a non-technical, accessible style. Readers are thus invited to draw their own conclusions. Two introductory essays furnish a historical overview of the debate.See all Editorial Reviews
