Event: Saving Evolution from Itself

National Association of Scholars

What, precisely, do we mean by the word “evolution”? Is Darwinism one thing, or many? Is Darwinism science, or is it something else entirely?

University of Alabama at Birmingham Professor Emeritus Michael Flannery is author of Nature’s Prophet: Alfred Russel Wallace and His Evolution from Natural Selection to Natural Theology and “Strong and Weak Teleology in the Life Sciences Post-Darwin.” He has thought deeply on all these questions, in particular the philosophical roots of modern evolutionism, the history of Darwinism, its relationship to the thought of Alfred Russel Wallace, and the problematic concept of teleology (goal-directedness) in life and evolution.

Join the National Association of Scholars on Friday, October 28, at 3 pm ET for a wide-ranging and penetrating discussion with Professor Flannery about one of science's modern dogmas.

The discussion will be moderated by J. Scott Turner, Director of the Intrusion of Diversity in the Sciences Project for the National Association of Scholars. This webinar is the sixth installment in NAS’s ongoing Restoring the Sciences webinar series.
