Re: New book on Darwin and evolution
Hello Hanne, thank you very much for your kind offer to discuss your book at Booktalk.org. I think that booktalk is an ideal venue for a polite and informative discussion of the themes you raise. I am particularly interested in the causal philosophy of evolution, how Darwin's insight reflects his "modest genius" (as you put it) intuition of the way things must be, due to the simple physical logic of causation, as an amazingly elegant explanation of reality with application to all complex systems.
I would like to read your book. Popular science, such as books by Richard Dawkins and Stephen Jay Gould and Carl Sagan and James Gleick and Dava Sobel, is a great way to gain understanding of major ideas that shape our world.
