2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John C. Landon on April 22, 2005
Format: Hardcover
The current Darwin debate is fixated in a species of dialectical seesaw, metaphysical in essence, in a fashion that blights both scientists and their religious opponents. The study of eighteenth century biology would seem an unpromising venue, but this study of Kant, the dialectic of teleology and the Critique of Judgment, in the context of the early stages of this science, with its imminent discovery of evolution, summons up the key issues that haunts the subject to this day. The Darwin debate can be a source of bewilderment but students of Kant often stumble on the reason for it, and the meticulous effort in this text to trace the distinctions of constitutive and regulative judgements in Kant's early and late works does just that. Kant had a fine sense of the complexity of the organism and, despite his orientation to the legacy of Newton, brought a disconcerting double perspective to his critical system, yet one that cogently highlights the dilemma of scientific methodologies attempting to unify biological understanding, but always with a basic contradiction in tow. Thus the current debate over design versus reductionist selectionism is not so surprising in this context, as the basic difficulty pointed to by Kant resurfaces at once in scientific and public discourse, as if revolving around the 'antinomy of teleological judgment'.
