This first-ever online course, August 9 through September 21, is taught by Taught by Research Professor Thomas Woodward:
This course centers on the historical controversy between Darwinism and intelligent design while examining three dimensions (science, philosophy and history) of the contemporary debate between the two theories.
The courses’ unifying goal is to understand:
(1) Why scientific skepticism of Darwinian evolution intensified during the past half-century,
(2) How design theorists have articulated the “inference to design,” and
(3) How Darwinists have responded to these challenges.
