corrects an oversight in the history of science which has swerved the modern world off its track
Carmel, CA (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
Do “survival of the fittest” and “selfish genes”—or love, moral sensitivity, and education—drive human evolution?
A hard-hitting new book and trilogy contend long range survival of our species depends on a massive break with old style, old paradigm Darwinists and Darwinism as well as regressive Creationism.
In the new third edition of Darwin’s Lost Theory by evolutionary systems scientist and award-winning author David Loye, Darwin himself, in page after page of his own long ignored original writing, makes the case for the primacy of mutual aid, education, love, and moral sensitivity as the crucial, higher order drivers for human evolution.
Part I, A Young Man's Bold Vision, explores the life of the 28-year-old Darwin in the critical months during which he first wrote of what became the known theory of evolution, for which he became famous. But within his long unpublished private notebooks, Dr.Loye has uncovered a startling new moral and spiritually progressive completion for his theory.
Part II, An Old Man's Surprises, 30 years later, follows Darwin as he develops his youthful insight into the long ignored, higher order completion for his theory of evolution. Of how, rather than being slaves of "selfish genes," far more often than we are aware, we are driven by moral sensitivity. Of how, though selfish, we are also driven by love to transcend selfishness. Of how, though fiercely motivated to survive and prevail, we are also driven by a transcendent need to respect and care for the needs of others.
Corroborated by scores of new studies, endorsed up front by leading American and European scientists, Loye’s recovery and reconstruction of Darwin’s “lost theory” has been widely acclaimed. Among comments by the experts: “a major scientific treasure”... “corrects an oversight in the history of science which has swerved the modern world off its track”... “of urgent importance to the intellectual discourse of the time” ... “unique erudition...an enormous and critical task...carried it off with genius”... “an immensely important book with an engaging and easy style.”
To provide the grounding for Loye’s forthcoming trilogy Darwin and the Battle for Human Survival, the new third edition for Darwin’s Lost Theory has been revised and updated with special indexes tailored to the needs of an unusually wide range of readers—philosophers, theologians, teachers and students in all fields, as well as scientists and general readers.
In a long overdue update for science and books on Darwin and evolution, the new third edition and trilogy are being published by the Benjamin Franklin Press (http://www.benjaminfranklinpress.com) with global distribution through online book sellers and The Ingram Book Company for U.S. book stores.
