Kirjan takakannesta:

In this book, first published in 2004, William Dembski, Michael Ruse, and other prominent philosophers provide a comprehensive balanced overview of the debate concerning biological origins – a controversial dialectic since Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859.

Invariably, the source of controversy has been 'design'. Is the appearance of design in organisms (as exhibited in their functional complexity) the result of purely natural forces acting without prevision or teleology? Or, does the appearance of design signify genuine prevision and teleology, and, if so, is that design empirically detectable and thus open to scientific inquiry?

Four main positions have emerged in response to these questions: Darwinism, self-organisation, theistic evolution, and intelligent design. The contributors to this volume define their respective positions in an accessible style, inviting readers to draw their own conclusions. Two introductory essays furnish a historical overview of the debate.


Matematiikan ja filosofian tohtori William A. Dembski on filosofian tutkimusprofessori (Southwestern Seminary, Fort Worth), where he directs its Center for Cultural Engagement. He is also a senior fellow with Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture in Seattle.

Brittiläissyntyinen tieteenfilosofi Michael Ruse on pitkän kanadalaisyliopistossa tehdyn uransa jälkeen sijoittunut Florida State Universityn professoriksi. Hän on perehtynyt evoluution ja kreationismin väliseen kiistaan sekä uskonnon ja tieteen yhteensovittamiseen.
