SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc In this groundbreaking and very accessible book, Daniel C. Dennett, the acclaimed author of Consciousness Explained, demonstrates the power of the theory of natural selection and shows how Darwin's great idea transforms and illuminates our traditional view of our place in the universe.
SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc Following Darwinian thinking to its logical conclusions is a risky business, with pitfalls for everybody. Creationists and others who reject evolution are not the only ones to fall into the traps. Many who accept the validity of Darwin's conclusions hesitate before their implications and distort his theory, fearful that it is politically incorrect or antireligious, or that it robs life of all spirituality.
SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc Dennett explains the scientific theory of natural selection in vivid terms, and shows how it extends far beyond biology.
