Science and reason were supposed to transform the world for the good instead of soaking it in gore.
If scientists thought that life’s origin and nature would soon yield to scientific reductionism, they have been disappointed.
Dr. Berlinski explores a chicken-and-egg problem facing origin-of-life research, and a blindness afflicting some evolutionists focused on human origins.
Berlinski is at his best as he discusses everything from the Tower of Babel as a metaphor for modern science, to his friendship with Marcel Schützenberger.
“Many will read this book for the close, elegant reasoning, the astonishing erudition, or the mordant analysis. I confess I read it for the prose.”
