Okay…we know American schools feel weird about teaching evolution. What do we DO about it?
As SAGLRROILYBYGTH are painfully aware, I’ve got a new book coming out in the next coupla weeks about creationism and evolution education. I’ve teamed up with philosopher extraordinaire Harvey Siegel on Teaching Evolution in a Creation Nation.
In the first several chapters, I offer a brief review and argument about the history of evolution education in these United States. Then Professor Siegel walks us through some of the key philosophical questions involved. Finally, we offer some common-sense but uncommonly difficult prescriptions for moving forward.
The University of Chicago Press has just released the cover art. What do you think? (It’s too late now to change it, so please just tell me it looks great and that you’ll take a dozen copies.)
