Wallace’s argument for guidance and purpose in the universe is made quite apart from his spiritualistic beliefs.
It’s too bad that Anthony Kuhn and others cannot tell what Paul Harvey used to call “the rest of the story.”
The fact that Darwinism is in need of an apologetic for its social record should give its supporters (including Peter Bowler) more than momentary pause.
Imagine that Darwin had fallen overboard and there was no Origin of Species or anything else from his pen.
In a real sense the issue of Wallace’s status is not settled.
