Several years ago, we held a conference on the interaction between engineering, science, philosophy, and theology. The result of this was a book titled “Engineering and the Ultimate: An Interdisciplinary Investigation of Order and Design in Nature and Craft”. It is now available for half price at Amazon if anyone wants to pick up a copy!
You can find the book here. It contains chapters from a number of authors on topics such as:
- Reverse engineering, its role in scientific methodology, and its relation to design
- The role of theology and philosophy in public architecture
- Modeling non-naturalistic causation mathematically
- Using non-naturalistic causation principles in software complexity analysis and management
- A reformulation of specified complexity using algorithmic information theory
- Meeting the challenge of pragmatic philosophy
- The role of engineering in an integrated understanding of creation
- A framework for integrating intelligent agents to collect CSI
- Self-replication from an engineering perspective
It is, in large part, an “Applied Intelligent Design” book.
