Doubting Darwin? by Sahotra Sarkar
Book DescriptionNoted biologist and philosopher Sahotra Sarkar exposes the frauds and fallacies of Intelligent Design Theory, and its claim to be 'good science'. * A scientific and philosophical exploration of the debate between evolutionary theory and Intelligent Design in the classroom * Puts the debate into its scientific and historical context * Looks at a variety of topics, including the relation between Darwinism and modern evolutionary theory, the use of computer science and information theory by the creationists, and the idea of metaphysical naturalism * Rejects Intelligent Design's claim to legitimacy, showing clearly how and why it is an unsuitable alternative to evolutionary biology in the classroom * A thought-provoking book for those seeking to understand an intellectual debate that is shaping our education policies * Forms part of the provocative and timely Blackwell Public Philosophy series
