Post-Darwinian Controversies by James Richard Moore
Book DescriptionThe Post-Darwinian Controversies offers an original interpretation of Protestant responses to Darwin after 1870, viewing them in a transatlantic perspective and as a constitutive part of the history of post-Darwinian evolutionary thought. The impact of evolutionary theory on the religious consciousness of the nineteenth century has commonly been seen in terms of a 'conflict' or 'warfare' between science and theology. Dr. Moore's account begins by discussing the polemical origins and baneful effects of the 'military metaphor', and this leads to a revised view of the controversies based on an analysis of the underlying intellectual struggle to come to terms with Darwin. The middle section of the book distinguishes the 'Darwinism' of Darwin himself amid the main currents of post-Darwinian evolutionary thought, and is followed by chapters which examine the responses to Darwin of twenty-eight Christian controversialists, tracing the philosophical and theological lineage of their views. The paradox that emerges - that Darwin's theory was accepted in substance only by those whose theology was distinctly orthodox theology and of other evolutionary theories with liberal and romantic theological speculation.

Descent of Man, Paperback (February 2004)
Named by Sigmund Freud as 'one of the ten most significant books' ever written, Darwin's "Descent of Man" continues to shape the way we think about what it is that makes us uniquely human. In this book, the authors call for a radical re-assessment of the book, arguing that its core ideas on race were fired by Darwin's hatred of slavery.

Essays by prominent scholars in the history of evolutionary thought, with additional contributions by the dedicatee.
