English summary: Scholars in the natural sciences, theology and the arts discuss fundamental questions about the evolution of life and culture and the creation on an endeavour to explain life and faith. German text. German description: Sobald sich der Mensch seiner selbst bewusst wird, will er wissen, wer er ist, wo er herkommt und was nach ihm sein wird. Antworten findet er in den Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften und in der Religion. Sein Fragehorizont hat sich weit uber die in den Schopfungsmythen erkennbaren ersten Ansatze ordnender und zahlender Welterklarung hinaus entwickelt. Erforscht werden heute die Rander des erkennbaren Universums ebenso wie die Ubergangsfelder von der unbelebten zur belebten Materie und die Bedingungen der Evolution des Erkennens. Wie die Rede von einer sich entwickelnden Schopfung so mag auch die Rede von der Evolution der Physik uberraschen. Sie vollzieht sich im Horizont einer Welt, deren Entwicklungspotentiale ihrem Anfang eingeschrieben sind. Ob sich Evolution unter dem Druck des schon Erreichten oder als Annaherung an ein absolutes Ziel vollzieht, bleibt im interdisziplinaren Diskurs kontrovers. Verhandelt werden weiter die Grundlinien einer evolutionaren Asthetik, evolutionare Entwicklungen in der Musik, die kulturelle Evolution der Natur und schliealich die Frage, ob sich die friedvolle Koexistenz von christlichem Schopfungsglauben und naturwissenschaftlicher Welterklarung konfliktreich zuspitzt, wenn das Urknallmodell von der Theorie eines ewigen Multiversums abgelost wird.

“I often said before starting, that I had no doubt I should frequently repent of the whole undertaking.” So wrote Charles Darwin aboard The Beagle, bound for the Galapagos Islands and what would arguably become the greatest and most controversial discovery in scientific history. But the theory of evolution did not spring full-blown from the head of Darwin. Since the dawn of humanity, priests, philosophers, and scientists have debated the origin and development of life on earth, and with modern science, that debate shifted into high gear. In this lively, deeply erudite work, Pulitzer Prize–winning science historian Edward J. Larson takes us on a guided tour of Darwin’s “dangerous idea,” from its theoretical antecedents in the early nineteenth century to the brilliant breakthroughs of Darwin and Wallace, to Watson and Crick’s stunning discovery of the DNA double helix, and to the triumphant neo-Darwinian synthesis and rising sociobiology today. Along the way, Larson expertly places the scientific upheaval of evolution in cultural perspective: the social and philosophical earthquake that was the French Revolution; the development, in England, of a laissez-faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world, where religious fundamentalists litigate for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in U.S. public schools, even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directions. Throughout, Larson trains his spotlight on the lives and careers of the scientists, explorers, and eccentrics whose collaborations and competitions have driven the theory of evolution forward. Here are portraits of Cuvier, Lamarck, Darwin, Wallace, Haeckel, Galton, Huxley, Mendel, Morgan, Fisher, Dobzhansky, Watson and Crick, W. D. Hamilton, E. O. Wilson, and many others. Celebrated as one of mankind’s crowning scientific achievements and reviled as a threat to our deepest values, the theory of evolution has utterly transformed our view of life, religion, origins, and the theory itself, and remains controversial, especially in the United States (where 90% of adults do not subscribe to the full Darwinian vision). Replete with fresh material and new insights, Evolution will educate and inform while taking readers on a fascinating journey of discovery.

Looking for the first time at the cut-price anatomy schools rather than genteel Oxbridge, Desmond winkles out pre-Darwinian evolutionary ideas in reform-minded and politically charged early nineteenth-century London. In the process, he reveals the underside of London intellectual and social life in the generation before Darwin as it has never been seen before. "The Politics of Evolution is intellectual dynamite, and certainly one of the most important books in the history of science published during the past decade."—Jim Secord, Times Literary Supplement "One of those rare books that not only stakes out new territory but demands a radical overhaul of conventional wisdom."—John Hedley Brooke, Times Higher Education Supplement

One of the major works of twentieth-century anthropological theory, written by one of the discipline’s most important, complex, and controversial figures, has not been in print for several years. Now Evolution of Culture is again available in paperback, allowing today’s generation of anthropologists new access to Leslie White’s crucial contribution to the theory of cultural evolution. A new, substantial introduction by Robert Carneiro and Burton J. Brown assess White’s historical importance and continuing influence in the discipline. White is credited with reintroducing evolution in a way that had a profound impact on our understanding of the relationship between technology, ecology, and culture in the development of civilizations. A materialist, he was particularly concerned with societies’ ability to harness energy as an indicator of progress, and his empirical analysis of this equation covers a vast historical span. Fearlessly tackling the most fundamental questions of culture and society during the cold war, White was frequently a lightning rod both inside and outside the academy. His book will provoke equally potent debates today, and is a key component of any course or reading list in anthropological or archaeological theory and cultural ecology.
