Overview

Twelve renowned scientists and theologians offer penetrating insights into the evolution dialogue in The Deep Structure of Biology. Each considers whether the orthodox model of evolution is sufficient and offers his/her own perspective on evolution and biology. Essays include:

Chance and Necessity in Evolution
Green Plants as Intelligent Organisms
Canny Corvoids and Political Primates: A Case for Convergent Evolution in Intelligence
Social and Cultural Evolution in the Ocean: Convergences and Contrasts with Terrestrial Systems
Purpose in Nature: On the Possibility of a Theology of Evolution

Editor Simon Conway Morris provides the introduction and an overview of the issues as well as an essay on evolution and convergence. Other contributors are: Richard Lenski, George McGhee, Karl Niklas, Anthony Trewavas, Nigel Franks, Nicola Clayton, Nathan Emery, HalWhitehead, Robert Foley, Michael Ruse, Celia Deane-Drummond, and John Haught.

The discussion of biology and evolution in these essays broadens the scope of the traditional evolution discussion as it aims to stimulate the development of further research programs. Scholars in the science and religion field will find this book a valuable resource.
