12. Towards a new Evolutionary Synthesis [Journals] [SIS Review]
... also a contributor to Perspectives on Evolution [5 ]; indeed, he is the author of the opening chapter, at the conclusion of which he writes, "Evolutionary biology is so complex that attempts in the near future to build syntheses around the framework of rigid, all-inclusive generalizations or laws will continue to be self-defeating and will lead to ... in tone from anything in Darwin to DNA, Molecules to Humanity, but is consistent with the rest of Perspectives on Evolution, which is a series of essays written by biologists for students of biology. In contrast to the how much we know' theme of Darwin to DNA, Molecules to Humanity, the theme here is a much more ...

Does this solve the problem? Robert Shapiro in his book Origins informs us ...
14. Personal Notes [Journals] [Pensee]
... Clark College as an Invited Scholar. Most likely you will remember me as the biologist in the last session, Friday evening, who brought up some problems relative to the biological implications of your overall theory. Because of the limits of time, I did not have the opportunity to explain clearly enough the points I raised. I am afraid ... surely one of the highlights of my academic career, participation in the symposium at Lewis and Clark College as an Invited Scholar. Most likely you will remember me as the biologist in the last session, Friday evening, who brought up some problems relative to the biological implications of your overall theory.

15. In Defence of Sir Fred Hoyle [Journals] [SIS Review]
... divisions of nature into subjects is not a reflection of nature but the result of a poor educational system. The Universe, he says, does not distinguish between astronomy and biology, and neither it does. Biologists argue that Hoyle may have the right to comment on biology but that he does not understand their subject. Now, this seems ... first, that life did not originate on Earth; secondly, that it did originate in space; and thirdly, that evolution in space requires "cosmic control". Biologists, of course, do not like physicists treading on their patch (a sociological aside only). Hoyle has said, rightly, that the divisions of nature into ...
16. Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution [Journals] [Aeon]
... the basis for it. And yet, Behe commented, "Science has made enormous progress in understanding how the chemistry of life works, but the elegance and complexity of biological systems at the molecular level have paralyzed science's attempt to explain their origins." Further, and perhaps most significantly, Behe states that "there are compelling reasons- ... further proofs would be forthcoming as more information became available. Hope springs eternal. In more recent years we've been entertained by many persuasively prolific and resourceful writers, such as biologist Richard Dawkins of Oxford, Stephen Jay Gould of Harvard, and cognitive spe-cialist Daniel Dennett of Tufts University, all of whom put their own special spins on Darwinian evolutionary ...
17. How To Defuse A Feud [Journals] [Kronos]
... explained nothing and was therefore useless. This frailty of the Synthetic Theory had been pointed out before (it would be easy to cite eight respectable names here, some from biology and some from law, history and philosophy),* but never had it been expounded so neatly and thoroughly as by Brady. In April of 1982 he hammered ... clamor. The reader will immediately ask how we can possibly tell anyone that the Synthetic Theory has collapsed. The answer is that this is already the view of many eminent biologists, although the public has not yet been fully informed. Here is the situation. The central pillar of the Synthetic Theory (and of all forms of Darwinism) ...
18. Focus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 3 (Dec 1981) Home | Issue Contents Focus A New Science of Life There has recently been a major breakthrough in biological thinking which has important implications for Velikovskian ideas of evolution and collective, subconscious memories. Although the physicists, though their investigation of the properties of atomic particles where probability rules ... place of matter, have for some time been working within the realms of metaphysics, the biologists have remained steadfast materialists. Life is completely explicable in chemical terms, they think, and the molecular biologist will eventually unlock all hidden secrets. Now one biologist, a Cambridge scholar and a Rosenheim Research Fellow of the Royal Society, a scientist ...

... different quasi-stable state by the emergence of, for example, a new technology. From his discussions with geneticist/polymath Stuart Kauffman, who had found similar behaviour in the biological world, came the realisation that life forms within an ecosystem apply external' pressures on each other, the concept of co-evolution. However, as enunciated in Complexity it ... we missed something about evolution - some key principle that has shaped the development of life in ways quite different from natural selection, genetic drift, and all the other mechanisms biologists have evoked over the years? Among the 300 physicists, computer scientists and biologists who gathered in Santa Fe recently for the second workshop on artificial life there seemed little ...

DUBROV is a Soviet biologist, a member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, and his book is the first extensive examination of the biological effects of the GMF to appear in English.

The Geomagnetic Field and Life is a more detailed, technical and specialised work but much of it is still accessible to the general reader.
