But is It Science?: The Philosophical Question in the Creation/Evolution Controversy (Frontiers of Philosophy)by Michael Ruse
Synopses & Reviews
Is "creation science" really scientific? What criteria, if any, exist for identifying a discipline as a science? This collection of essays answers these questions and many more about the creation/evolution controversy and the very nature of science itself.<P>"... an interesting analysis of a controversy that just won't go away". — Science Books & Films
Book News Annotation:
Contains 27 essays which examine the creation/evolution debate by taking as a point of departure the editor's experience as an expert witness in a creation "science" test case in Arkansas. Four sections cover the 19th-century background, evolution today, the creationist challenge, and the philosophical aftermath. The authors explore the claim made by proponents of creationism that it is a science and therefore deserves to take its place among other scientific theories that are taught in school systems throughout the country. No index.
