From the Publisher"A balanced, detailed and well-presented introduction to allaspects of the argument."
Father John-Paul Sheridan, Sunday BusinessPost
"An engaging book. It will provide fuel for Fuller’scritics who have accused him of 'pomo science' (postmodernscience); energize ID theorists in their efforts to 'widen thewedge'; and serve food for thought for those still sitting 'on thefence' between ID and mainstream science. These are marks of a goodbook."
Science in Christian Perspective
“Steve Fuller’s book is a philosophic and historicaltour de force. I know no other book that provides such a balanced,timely, in-depth, account of the historical and philosophic originsand affiliations of contemporary Intelligent Design (ID) andDarwinism. Each chapter is informative, sharply analytic,provocative, probing, witty and superbly written. The historicalroots of modern science in ID thinking that Fuller traces will be amuch-needed eye-opener to many and a wholesome antidote to thehistorical amnesia that characterizes most contemporary discussionof the scientific status of ID and of Darwiniantheory.”
John Angus Campbell, Memphis StateUniversity
“Whether you are outraged by ‘IntelligentDesign’ theory or annoyed by the attacks on it,Fuller’s book is an indispensable guide to the controversy.He manages to not only supply the intellectual context, showing howmuch of this debate is traditional and how much is new, but makesclear what is reasonable on both sides, and why the debate mattersso much to us.”
