A major scientific revolution has begun a new paradigm that rivals Darwin s theory in importance At its heart is the discovery of the order that lies deep within the most complex of systems from the origin of life to the workings of giant corporations to the rise and fall of great civilizations And more than anyone else this revolution is the work of one man Stuart Kauffman a MacArthur Fellow and visionary pioneer of the new science of complexity Now in At Home in the Universe Kauffman brilliantly weaves together the excitement of intellectual discovery and a fertile mix of insights to give the general reader a fascinating look at this new science and at the forces for order that lie at the edge of chaos, No description available, William Dembski Michael Ruse and other prominent philosophers provide here a comprehensive balanced overview of the debate concerning biological origins a controversial dialectic since Darwin published The Origin of Species in 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 organization theistic evolution 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 William A Dembski is an associate research professor in the conceptual foundations of science at Baylor University as well as a senior fellow with Seattle s Discovery Institute His most important books are The Design Inference Cambridge and No Free Lunch Rowman and Littleton Michael Ruse is Lucyle T Wekmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University He is the author of many books including Can a Darwinian Be a Christian The Relationship Between Science and Religion Cambridge, No description available
