9780878936595: Denying Evolution: Creationism, Scientism, and the Nature of Science

Denying Evolution aims at taking a fresh look at the evolution-creation controversy. It presents a truly "balanced" treatment, not in the sense of treating creationism as a legitimate scientific theory (it demonstrably is not), but in the sense of dividing the blame for the controversy equally between creationists and scientists--the former for subscribing to various forms of anti-intellectualism, the latter for discounting science education and presenting science as scientism to the public and the media. The central part of the book focuses on a series of creationist fallacies (aimed at showing errors of thought, not at deriding) and of mistakes by scientists and science educators. The last part of the book discusses long-term solutions to the problem, from better science teaching at all levels to the necessity of widespread understanding of how the brain works and why people have difficulties with critical thinking.

About the Author:


Massimo Pigliucci is Chair of the Department of Philosophy at CUNY: Lehman College. He holds doctorates in genetics (University of Ferrara, Italy), botany (University of Connecticut) and the philosophy of science (University of Tennessee). Dr. Pigliucci was formerly a Professor of Ecology and Evolution at SUNY: Stony Brook. There he explored phenotypic plasticity, genotype-environment interactions, natural selection, and the constraints imposed on natural selection by the genetic and developmental makeup of organisms. He was the recipient of the 1997 Dobzhansky Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution. As a philosopher, Dr. Pigliucci is interested in the structure and foundations of evolutionary theory, the relationship between science and philosophy, and the relationship between science and religion.

Review:

"Massimo PigliucciÂ’s finest work to date. Â... a penetrating, timely analysis of why the controversy still exists..." -- Shawn Dawson, Free Inquiry

... buy, beg or borrow it and read it before you next find yourself caught up in the ‘debate.’" -- John S. Edwards, Integrative and Comparative Biology

Denying Evolution is informative, interesting, and here and there entertaining. It has my strongest recommendation." -- William D. Anderson, Jr., Copeia

It is multifaceted, fascinating, and essential. -- Brian Alters, The Quarterly Review of Biology

Pigliucci presents the most powerful and readable treatise on the evolution–creationism debate to come along in decades. --Michael Shermer, Publisher, Skeptic magazine, and Contributing Editor, Scientific American

The book is written for an audience who needs no background in the subject to begin enjoying it; once finished, however, readers will have extensive knowledge. It is multifaceted, fascinating, and essential. Everyone involved in science research, science education, and education policy (including politicians) should not only read the work, but encourage others to do likewise. --Brian Alters, The Quarterly Review of Biology

Massimo Pigliucci s finest work to date. ... a penetrating, timely analysis of why the controversy still exists. ... Overall, Denying Evolution possesses a subtlety, breadth, and sensitivity to nonscientific issues that is pleasantly reminiscent of the likes of Carl Sagan and Stephen Jay Gould which is no small praise indeed. ... Simply put, Denying Evolution is probably the most insightful book on the evolution creationism topic to come out in years, and it is highly recommended. --Shawn Dawson, Free Inquiry
