Product description

Review

Technically sound in both philosophy of science and evolutionary theory, [Sarkar] appreciates the social responsibility of this position. He is not afraid to wade into a charged political atmosphere. It would make a wonderful textbook for an undergraduate course in either biology or philosophy, and could also be effectively used as a jumping off point into a deeper exploration of a host of topics. My copy will be close at hand on my bookshelf when ID creationists present themselves at my door. ( Bioscience, December 2008)

This is a clear and judicious book Sarkar is to be praised for his nuanced and balanced presentation of the arguments and issues he discusses. (Kaleidoscope)

Sarkar s concise, elegant prose allows him to enlighten and engage readers on every topic a must read for anyone interested in following the debate... (Choice)

Review

"This is a splendid discussion of the whole question of ID. Get this book and read it."
Michael Ruse, review for National Center for Science Education

Sarkar s scientific expositions and dissections of Dembski s specious arguments and Behe s lack of imagination are clear, surgical, and authoritative. For those who would fear a return to the middle ages, this is the best critique of ID now available.
William Wimsatt, University of Chicago

Part history, part science, and part philosophy, Doubting Darwin? is a deft critique of the new creationism. Sahotra Sarkar hits all the main points with economy and the broad knowledge of a scientist–philosopher.
Jeffrey Shallit, University of Waterloo

The West s simultaneous loyalty to Christianity and science is a cognitive dissonance in our culture as a whole, most prominently manifested in the Intelligent Design Movement. Sahotra Sarkar s book is a welcome attempt to apply cognitive therapy to our culture, by talking us through the contradictions in intelligent design.
David Wolpert, Senior Computer Scientist at NASA

Sahotra Sarkar lucidly and comprehensively dismantles Intelligent Design creationism in the most powerful way: by explaining the biology. This book summarizes the theory and philosophy of evolution with depth and insight, and in a way that sharply refutes the objections of creationism.
P. Z. Myers, PhD, University of Minnesota, Morris, and author of Pharyngula Blog
