Science as a way of knowing : the foundations of modern biology by John Alexander Moore( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science was not always the dominant way of knowing, as we see in this spirited exploration of how human beings over the millennia have sought to understand the phenomena of life. Central to the puzzle are several questions: How did living matter arise, and how does it reproduce itself? How does life develop from a single cell into a complex organism? And how did the vast variety of species we see around us, and those long-extinct, come to be? One of the intellectual wonders of our time has been biologists' gradual untangling of these great mysteries, beginning with the investigations of Aristotle and the Greeks, continuing through the experiments and theories of Darwin and his contemporaries, and culminating in the researches of geneticists, developmental biologists, paleontologists, and other specialists in the twentieth century." "For more than twenty years John Moore has taught biology instructors how to teach biology - by emphasizing the questions people have asked about life through the ages and the ways natural philosophers and scientists have sought the answers. This book makes Moore's uncommon wisdom available to the general reader in a lively and richly illustrated account of the history and workings of life. Employing a breadth of rhetorical strategies - including vividly written case histories, hypotheses and deductions, and chronological narrative - Science as a Way of Knowing provides not only a cultural history of biology but also a splendid introduction to the procedures and values of science. This book's interpretive, nontechnical approach to the sciences of life will delight and inform anyone curious about what we knew and when we knew it. It is indispensable reading for the nonspecialist seeking a deeper understanding of how modern molecular biology, ecology, and biotechnology came to be."--Jacket

From Genesis to genetics : the case of evolution and creationism by John Alexander Moore( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The clash between evolution and creationism is one of the most hotly contested topics in education today. This book, written by one of America's most distinguished science educators, provides essential background information on this difficult and important controversy. Giving a sweeping and balanced historical look at both schools of thought, John A. Moore shows that faith can exist alongside science, that both are essential to human happiness and fulfillment, but that we must support the teaching of science and the scientific method in our nation's schools. This highly informative book will be an invaluable aid for parents, teachers, and lawmakers, as well as for anyone who wants a better understanding of this debate. From Genesis to Genetics shows us why we must free both science and religion to do the good work for which each is uniquely qualified." "Using accessible language, Moore describes in depth these two schools of thought. He begins with an analysis of the Genesis story, examines other ancient creation myths, and provides a nuanced discussion of the history of biblical interpretation. After looking at the tenets and historical context of creationism, he presents the history of evolutionary thought, explaining how it was developed, what it means, and why it is such a powerful theory. Moore goes on to discuss the relationship of nineteenth-century religion to Darwinism, examine the historic Scopes trial, and take us up to the current controversy over what to teach in schools. Most importantly, this book also explores options for avoiding confrontations over this issue in the future."--Jacket
