Michael Ruse: Darwinian Existentialism

Description

Michael Ruse was a complete treat as a guest. He is an insightful, energetic, and humorous conversation partner. On top of that, as a philosopher of science, Dr. Ruse brings a career’s worth of insights into the present state of the religion and science conversation. I have quite a bit of gratitude that Dr. Ruse took his time to join the podcast. During the podcast we discuss: the changing shape of the relationship between Religion – Science the battle over Creationism is there a purpose? the meaning of life the problem of holism evil, violence, and the problem of war the New Atheism as a Secular Religion  moving beyond original sin growing up Quaker during war Michael Ruse is Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Program in the History and Philosophy of Science at Florida State University. He’s a British-born Canadian philosopher of science who specializes in the philosophy of biology and works on the relationship between science and religion, the creation–evolution controversy, and the demarcation problem within science.
