Product description

Despite the theory s age, "The Blind Watchmaker" is as prescient and timely as ever. The watchmaker belongs to the eighteenth-century theologian, William Paley, who argued that just as a watch is too complicated and functional to have sprung into existence by accident, so too must all living things, with their far greater complexity, be purposefully designed. Charles Darwin s brilliant discovery challenged the creationist arguments, but only Richard Dawkins could have written this elegant riposte. Natural selection: the unconscious, automatic, blind, yet essentially nonrandom process Darwin discovered has no purpose in mind. If it can be said to play the role of a watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker. Dawkins has done more than anyone else now writing to make evolutionary biology comprehensible and acceptable to a general audience. John Maynard Smith As readable and vigorous a defense of Darwinism as has been published since 1859. "The Economist""
