Design in Biology and Physics

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is a lecture I gave at the conference Design in Nature? Scientific and Philosophical Perspectives, which took place at Hughes Hall, Cambridge on 14th July, 2012. I discuss the notion of explaining away and argue that there is no good reason to think that design has been explained away either in physics or biology. I also distinguish the kind of design I argue for in biology from Intelligent Design. In fact, this is an approach to design that could be embraced by proponents of either Theistic Evolution or Intelligent Design.

The conference was hosted by the Philosophy of Religion section of the Tyndale Fellowship. Other contributors to the conference were Prof. Stephen Clark, Dr Stephen Meyer and Prof. Steve Fuller.
