Authors Debate Charles Darwin’s Theories, Work in New Book
That academic battle plays out in a new book titled "Debating Darwin."
The two authors who present their contrasting ideas in the book Robert J. Richards, professor in History of Science and Medicine at the University of Chicago, and Michael Ruse, director of the Program in the History and Philosophy of Science at Florida State University, join us on Chicago Tonight.
Below, an excerpt from the book.

Amazon writes, "Charles Darwin is easily the most famous scientist of the modern age, and his theory of evolution is constantly referenced in many contexts by scientists and nonscientists alike."
Debating Darwin seeks to change that, bringing together two leading Darwin scholars—Robert J. Richards and Michael Ruse—to engage in a spirited and insightful dialogue, offering their interpretations of Darwin and their critiques of each other’s thinking.
