Item Description...
With the rise in prominence of the Intelligent Design movement (along with its vehement critics), the debate over origins increasingly plays itself out in the scientific community, the courts, the school boards, and the media. A traditional argument of proponents of evolution is that science in general, and evolution in particular, is empirically based, free from any religious or philosophical underpinnings. It follows, then, that science is a more trustworthy perspective on reality.

In this thought-provoking book, Cornelius Hunter turns that argument on its head. Through a study of the history of thought, he shows that in fact, modern science has been greatly influenced by theological and metaphysical considerations. This has resulted in the significant influence of what he calls "theological naturalism." Thus, naturalism is not a result of empirical scientific inquiry, but rather a presupposition of science. This bias is science's "blind spot," and it has profound implications for how scientific theories are evaluated and thus advanced or suppressed. In the end, Hunter proposes a better way--moderate empiricism--and shows how Intelligent Design fits into such a method. Science's Blind Spot provides food for thought for anyone interested in the intersection between scientific and religious thought.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A welcome new tangent to the debate  Oct 28, 2008
I thought I had seen all the arguments in this ongoing debate concerning evolution, but Mr. Hunter has come up with a new tangent. I learned a lot of history concerning this conflict of opinions and about the people who have contributed to the status quo. This is perhaps the most even handed approach I've seen to telling the story. Mr. Hunter makes a very low-key pitch for a wise approach to the question of origins, not an emotional knee jerk one. The key is that freedom must be allowed to follow the evidence wherever it leads. I highly recommend it to everyone, no matter what label you attach to your own beliefs.

Solid method of scientific approach  Sep 9, 2008
Ignore the individuals who either don't read the book and comment, or read it and don't understand the science anyway. This book is a solid historical approach detailing the cultural and moral pathways leading to the current cultural climate in realms of academia. He addresses easily verified facts, countless references to works from all walks of life, and does a great job of separating rationlism from scientific empiricism. An excellent read for those with the intellect to grip it and the willingness to accept facts for what they are.
Interesting discussion about Scientific Naturalism  Apr 24, 2008
This was an interesting book but somehow lacking a complete focus. The author is clearly a learned scientist with a good knowledge of the history of science but in his discussion about the basis of scientific naturalism and the failings of evolution his alternative, the Intelligent Design theory, was never really explained and it left the book feeling incomplete.

This could have been another evolution-bashing book but instead it approached the subject in a rather novel manner, suggesting that scientists who oppose Intelligent Design do so for theological reasons, not because of empirically-based arguments. His explanations of some of the failures of evolutionary proofs were helpful, along with many of the reasons that naturalists, many of whom have a strong Christian faith, believe that God's mode of creation must have been rather 'hands off' because the results that we see today are so variable. However his central premise, that of Intelligent Design, was never really delineated and was in fact barely mentioned; the book seemed to be trying to discredit evolution without giving a valid alternative in place. The sections on cosmology were most interesting, the parts about the rise of naturalism sometimes felt rather rushed and weren't adequately explained, but overall this was a good book with some failings. It in no way convinced me to change my view on the overall issue but did offer some very interesting food for thought and it was good to read a book written by a scientist who held to his scientific method as well as his beliefs.
Science or Religion? You decide . . .  Feb 21, 2008
If you ever suspected that the ideas underlying modern evolutionary theory lean toward being theological in nature, you should read this book. And if you tend toward a theistic worldview you might be surprised at the source of contemporary "theological naturalism", as Hunter terms the problem of modern science. Well researched and fair in his approach to describing the problem facing modern origins science, Hunter also offers a solution--one which all but the most dogmatic on either side of the origins spectrum will find attractive.
Understanding why they can't see  Feb 14, 2008
This book helped me understand why Scientific Naturalists are blinded to seeing anything other than thier way. They say Theists are the one's who are not open minded, but if you a priori exclude even the merest hint of even the slightest possibility of a different paradigm, then how are you any more enlightened?
