Genesis and Geology by Charles Coulston Gillispie

Book Description

First published in 1951, "Genesis and Geology" describes the background of social and theological ideas and the progress of scientific researches which, between them, produced the religious difficulties that afflicted the development of science in early industrial England. The book makes clear that the furor over "On the Origin of Species" was nothing new: earlier discoveries in science (particularly geology) had presented major challenges, not only to the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis, but even more seriously to the traditional idea that Providence controls the order of nature with an eye to fulfilling divine purpose. A new foreword by Nicolaas A. Rupke place this book in the context of the last 45 years of scholarship in the social history of evolutionary thought.
