British publisher Hillhouse has published a new textbook that should add real value to the scientific exploration of evolution and origins. Rather than being dumbed down, Explore Evolution: The Arguments For and Against Neo-Darwinism is full of information on evolution, and employs an ‘inquiry based learning‘, promoting ‘discovery, deliberation, and argument.’
I think Explore Evolution does a very good job in its stated purpose, namely, to provide a adj. employing scientific analysis of physical evidence (as from a crime scene) presentation of the open questions surrounding the Neo-Darwinian orthodoxy in contemporary biology. The style of the textbook alone is a breath of fresh air from the sterile dogmatism that students normally encounter in the classroom.
