Evolution, Chance, and God

Full Product Description

"Evolution, Chance and God" looks at the relationship between religion and evolution from a philosophical perspective. This relationship is fascinating, complex and often very controversial, involving myriad issues that are hard to keep separate from each other. "Evolution, Chance and God" introduces the reader to the main themes of this debate and to the theory of evolution, while arguing for a particular viewpoint, namely that evolution and religion are compatible, and that, contrary to the views of some influential thinkers, there is no chance operating in the theory of evolution. One of the main aims of this book is not simply to critique one influential contemporary view that evolution and religion are incompatible, but to explore "specific "ways of how we might understand their compatibility as well as the implications of evolution for religious belief. This involves a detailed exploration of how and why God might have created by means of evolution, and what the consequences in particular are for the status of human beings in creation, and for issues such as free will, the objectivity of morality, and the problem of evil. By probing how the theory of evolution and religion could be reconciled, Sweetman says that we can address more deeply than we normally do key foundational questions concerning chance, design, suffering and morality, waste in nature, and God's way of acting in and through creation.
