Darwin Studies (September 23, 2007)
I am so delighted to have you back on WAMU, especially with your wonderful program on Darwin. Very Christmas in September. My husband has given much thought to a School of Darwin Studies that would encompass the many disciplines and controversies that have formed around Darwin's ideas. Darwinian processes are everywhere, but as you ably point out, Darwin's name provokes much anger among some people you would expect to understand his vision of the beauty of the natural world (Hosanna!). Then there are people like Richard Dawkins who invoke Darwinian science to justify their similar hostility to the products of human evolution known as religions. How to reconcile these opposed views of creation (E.O. Wilson's term)? You and your excellent guest James Moore, and the profusion of resources compiled on your Web site, may have found the solution.
