A courageous thought provoking book covering the real conflict between creationism and evolution…
Gould sheds light on the dilemma which has plagued thinking since the renaissance. Instead of repeating this entire process why not choose something along the lines of a Aristotle’s golden mean?
There by both sides are given due respect, Science defines the natural world, religion the moral world each in their separate spheres of influence.
In the process of expounding this path Gould delves into history, science, sketching portraits of seminal figures like Galileo, Darwin and T H Huxley.
One must strive for a life of spirit and rational inquiry in order to enjoy the fullness of being human.
