Overview

This volume highlights points of agreement and disagreement between two leading conversants on the subject of Intelligent Design and the sufficiency of a Darwinian explanation of evolution. The subject of Intelligent Design has raised considerable interest and controversy over the meaning and relationship of science and religious conviction. Here two leading intellectuals on the subject-William A. Dembski, senior fellow with the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture, and Michael Ruse, an internationally noted philosopher of science-engage the issues. Their dialogue at the Greer-Heard Forum allows the reader to see in print how both positions are best articulated. The volume also provides the reader with an interdisciplinary assessment of Intelligent Design and Darwinian theory, enabling interested readers to assess and decide for themselves. Along with Dembski, Rase, and volume editor Robert Stewart, the interdisciplinary team features scientists, philosophers, and theologians and includes several of the most noted religious thinkers of our age on this topic.
