Evolution and the Meanings of Life

  $38.75
In Darwin's Dangerous Idea- Evolution and the Meanings of Life Daniel C. Dennett argues that the theory of evolution can demystify the miracles of life without devaluing our most cherished beliefs.
From the moment it first appeared, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection has been controversial- misrepresented, abused, denied and fiercely debated. In this powerful defence of Darwin, Daniel C. Dennett explores every aspect of evolutionary thinking to show why it is so fundamental to our existence, and why it affirms - not threatens - our convictions about the meaning of life.
'Essential and pleasurable for any thinking person'
Stephen Pinker
'A surpassingly brilliant book. Where creative, it lifts the reader to new intellectual heights. Where critical, it is devastating'
Richard Dawkins
'A brilliant piece of persuasion, excitingly argued and compulsively readable'
The Times Higher Education Supplement
'Superb ... This is the best single-author overview of all the implications of evolution by natural selection available ... deserves a place on the bookshelves of every thinking person'
John Gribbin, Sunday Times
'Dennett's book brings together science and philosophy with wit, complex clarity and an infectious sense that these ideas matter, to us and the way we live now'
A.S. Byatt, Sunday Times Books of the Year
