Konnte die Evolution gar nicht anders, musste sie als Krone der Schöpfung den Menschen hervorbringen? Oder würden heute Dinosaurier über die Welt herrschen, wenn vor 66 Millionen Jahren kein Asteroid auf der Erde eingeschlagen wäre? Dem Evolutionsbiologen Jonathan Losos gelang bei seiner Forschung an Eidechsen etwas, wovon Darwin nicht einmal zu träumen wagte: der Evolution bei ihrem Werk zuzusehen und zu beweisen, dass Evolution sich wiederholt. Auf einer faszinierenden Reise um den Globus lehrt uns der begnadete Erzähler Losos, dass die Evolution nicht würfelt – und die Menschheit ihre Existenz dennoch dem Glück zu verdanken hat.

A Modern Relation of Theology and Science Assisted by Emergence and Kenosis

Genre: Religion

How should we attempt to understand the relationship between theology and science in the twenty-first century? In this book, I will attempt to answer this question by examining several previous attempts to classify this relationship. I also develop my personal view of the relation, thereafter discussing some Catholic contributions to this project, and then revisit some of my previously published material, highlighting the role of panentheism therein, and noting an emergent implication from the literature: the resultant possibilities for God—an implication that creates space for a broadly relational perspective of the process of emergence. These movements allow me to argue that kenosis and emergence can add to the discussion of understanding the theology and science relationship. Herein, I advocate a monistic process-based view of the overlapping relationship between theology and science.

Teaching Big History

Genre: History

Big History is a new field on a grand scale: it tells the story of the universe over time through a diverse range of disciplines that spans cosmology, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and archaeology, thereby reconciling traditional human history with environmental geography and natural history. Weaving the myriad threads of evidence-based human knowledge into a master narrative that stretches from the beginning of the universe to the present, the Big History framework helps students make sense of their studies in all disciplines by illuminating the structures that underlie the universe and the connections among them. Teaching Big History is a powerful analytic and pedagogical resource, and serves as a comprehensive guide for teaching Big History, as well for sharing ideas about the subject and planning a curriculum around it. Readers are also given helpful advice about the administrative and organizational challenges of instituting a general education program constructed around Big History. The book includes teaching materials, examples, and detailed sample exercises. This book is also an engaging first-hand account of how a group of professors built an entire Big History general education curriculum for first-year students, demonstrating how this thoughtful integration of disciplines exemplifies liberal education at its best and illustrating how teaching and learning this incredible story can be transformative for professors and students alike.
