Abstract:

"We will only begin to understand evolution as a scientific problem if we start afresh -- by which Carl Woese mean going back to the original phenomenology, "descent" with modification, that was the coin of the intellectual realm circa 1800, when one could count Erasmus Darwin, Goethe, Kant, and Lamarck, among those who pondered it. And this is what we are doing now there at Illinois -- starting from the ground up, grounding their thinking in a non-Darwinian (sometimes anti-Darwinian when necessary to overcome obstructions) foundation in modern physics, not biology."--Abstract.
