Show Summary Details

Preview

Offers a comprehensive and even‐handed summary of America's contemporary intellectual and social debate over evolutionism and creationism, with its roots in Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). The book relies on more than 100 interviews with contemporary players, includes profiles of many of them, and reports opinion surveys of scientists and theologians. Chapters cover the topic's impact on politics, public education, museums and churches, the news media, public debate, beliefs of scientists, and issues of human nature and morality. The book closes with events in 2000 and suggests that in future debate, science is challenged to separate philosophy from evolution, and religion to explain God's action in the world.

Keywords: Charles Darwin; creation; education; evolution; media; politics; religion; science
