The philosophical and material problems of C. Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection were exposed comprehensively by Mivart in 1871, but in spite of this the Darwin myth has survived to the present day as the dogma in biology. Many working scientists have pointed out that neo-Darwinism is a busted flush but it has taken outsiders with a religious approach to really put the cat among the pigeons. Woodward focuses on the main protagonists of this movement and although he is sympathetic to their cause, he gives a reasonably balanced account of the movement and its aims. The key to their success has not been good science or the nature of their criticisms, but rhetoric, (the ways in which arguments are presented), and the organisation of the movement and how it disseminates its views to influential persons. The replies from the leading modern neo-Darwinians reflect that of Huxley in 1871, but this time the odds are stacked against them in ways that Woodward makes very clear. If biology (and science in general) are to meet and defeat this challenge they would do well to study the methods of the ID movement as described here and learn some important lessons - not least that falling back on one dogma (chance and gradual change) to defeat another will not reveal the true processes that lead to macro-evolution. Woodward also suffers from the fallacy that neo-Darwinism equals evolution when this is not the case, but he shows how well the ID movement is exploiting this misconception. This is in places a rather dry text but it should be read by any serious scholar of evolution or by those involved in opposing ID and its religious undertones in science.
