PALMERSTON NORTH, New Zealand (PRWEB) November 02, 2017
David Penny returns to the publishing scene with the release of “Evolution Now” (published by Xlibris NZ), an up-to-date view of modern evolutionary theory from a Popperian perspective.
The book dissects the chronology of evolutionary study starting from 1600s when people accepted that life continued to arise “naturally,” to the pre-evolutionary concept of the fixity of species, to Darwinian thoughts, to the Out of Africa theory, and more. The book finishes with a section on what is left for the future. “In good Popperian style, there is a lot left for us to discover!” Penny says.
Presenting a historical view of evolution, “Evolution Now” calls for a “true respect” for scientific knowledge.
“There is an ‘anti-science’ view that the book challenges, whilst saying that not everything we ‘believe’ is true. But science is the only ‘true’ path to wisdom,” Penny adds.
