Science and Religion assesses the impact of social, political and intellectual change upon Anglican circles, with reference to Oxford University in the decades that followed the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars. More particularly, the career of Baden Powell, father of the more famous founder of the Boy Scout movement, offers material for an important case-study in intellectual and political reorientation: his early militancy in right-wing Anglican movements slowly turned to a more tolerant attitude towards radical theological, philosophical and scientific trends. During the 1840s and 1850s, Baden Powell became a fearless proponent of new dialogues in transcendentalism in theology, positivism in philosophy, and pre-Darwinian evolutionary theories in biology. He was for instance the first prominent Anglican to express full support for Darwin's Origin of Species. Analysis of his many publications, and of his interaction with such contemporaries as Richard Whately, John Henry and Francis Newman, Robert Chambers, William Benjamin Carpenter, George Henry Lewes and George Eliot, reveals hitherto unnoticed dimensions of mid-nineteenth-century British intellectual and social life

Lamarck genèse et enjeux du transformisme, 1770-1830 by Pietro Corsi( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in French and Italian and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet homme ne fut ni un prophète isolé ni un précurseur de Darwin auquel on aurait omis de rendre justice. Telle est du moins la thèse soutenue par l'auteur qui montre que Lamarck participa pleinement aux grands débats de son époque sur l'extinction des espèces, la réforme de l'histoire naturelle, la méthode naturelle en taxinomie et les limites épistémologiques des théories sur la Terre

Storia del pensiero biologico : diversità, evoluzione, ereditarietà by Ernst Mayr( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in Italian and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frutto del lavoro di dieci anni, la "Storia del pensiero biologico" di Ernst Mayr rappresenta il primo tentativo sistematico di esplorare lo sviluppo delle scienze della vita negli ultimi trecento anni, con speciale riferimento alla storia delle dottrine evoluzionistiche, dei sistemi tassonomici e della genetica. Particolarmente importante è la ricostruzione dei dibattiti che portarono alla elaborazione della <<sintesi evoluzionistica>> degli anni trenta e quaranta del Novecento, cui Mayr prese attivamente parte, e di cui divenne uno dei più illustri sostenitori. Anche questa storia, per molti versi, rappresenta un capitolo dell'attività del Mayr scienziato e filosofo. Le polemiche contro l'essenzialismo - per l'autore, eterna bestia nera del pensiero biologico -, contro il finalismo e contro il dominio di una filosofia della scienza a suo avviso permeata dalle priorità della ricerca fisicomatematica, e dunque scarsamente sensibile alle particolari problematiche della scienza dei viventi, sono state cavalli di battaglia della lunga carriera di scienziato di Ernst Mayr, e orientano la trama narrativa della sua "Storia del pensiero biologico."

Did Darwin Kill God?( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are some who believe that Darwin's theory of evolution has weakened religion, fuelled in part by Richard Dawkins publishing phenomenon The God Delusion. Conor Cunningham argues that nothing could be further from the truth. Cunningham is a firm believer in the theory of evolution, but he is also a Christian. He believes that the clash between Darwin and God has been hijacked by extremists - fundamentalist believers who reject evolution on one side, and fundamentalist atheists on the other. Cunningham attempts to overturn what he believes are widely held but mistaken assumptions in the debate between religion and evolution."--Website
