Darwin's Nemesis: Phillip Johnson and the Intelligent Design Movement

by

Darwin's Nemesis: Phillip Johnson and the Intelligent Design Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the publication of Darwin on Trial in 1991, Cal Berkeley legal scholar Phillip Johnson became the leading figure in the intelligent design movement. Exposing and calling into question the philosophical foundations of Darwinism, Johnson led the charge against this largely unquestioned philosophy of materialistic reductionism and its purported basis in scientific research. This book reviews and celebrates the life and thought of Phillip Johnson and the movement for which he has served as chief architect. Editor William A. Dembski presents eighteen essays by those who have known and worked with Johnson for more than a decade. They provide personal and in-depth insight into the man, his convictions and his leadership of the intellectual movement that called into question the hegemony of Darwinian theory. Contributors include Stephen Meyer Michael Behe Jay Wesley Richards Thomas Woodward Francis Beckwith Timothy Standish David Berlinski Michael Ruse David Keller Jonathan Wells Scott Minnich Nancy Pearcey Jay Budziszewski Marcus Ross Paul Nelson Henry Schaefer III Wesley Allen Walter Bradley Phillip E. Johnson

Review:

"This Festschrift from friends — and a couple of friendly critics — honors Phillip Johnson, the Berkeley law professor whose 1991 publication Darwin on Trial and later books helped intelligent design emerge as a highly visible, and highly controversial, alternative to Darwinism. While it may be premature to hail Johnson as 'Darwin's Nemesis,' these essays reveal him as an influential strategist and mentor within the ID movement. Contributors to the 2004 symposium that spawned this collection include leading ID advocates Michael Behe, Stephen Meyer, Jonathan Wells and Scott Minnich, as well as Darwin defender Michael Ruse, who has engaged Johnson in debate. Other contributors address cultural and political questions beyond evolution itself, such as Francis Beckwith's timely review of legal controversies over ID in the classroom, J. Budziszewski's discussion of naturalism and the Natural Law tradition and editor William Dembski's commentary on the professional — and often personal — 'backlash' against ID advocates. Readers who are familiar with the basics of ID and curious about the movement's development and inner workings will find much of interest, although for an account of the most recent and current controversies over ID, they will need to consult other sources."
