We have been talking a bit about Rope Kojonen this last week, with his presentation at the AM-Nat conference and his recent paper on methodological naturalism in the International Journal for Philosophy of Religion. Now he has a new book out covering a philosophical perspective on the Intelligent Design debate.
The book, The Intelligent Design Debate and the Temptation of Scientism, covers a middle ground between ID and anti-ID positions. Dr. Kojonen is a proponent of methodological naturalism, but believes that such naturalism does not have a unique claim on knowledge. Kojonen argues that all sides employ unspoken theological claims, and that an epistemological pluralism obviates the need to avoid using these in argumentation.
