Politically Incorrect Scientist: How the Co-Founder of the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection Advocated Intelligent Design

Unlike Darwin, Wallace believed that biology provides powerful evidence of intelligent design. As a result, Wallace largely has been written out of the history of science by contemporary supporters of undirected evolution. Come learn about the life and legacy of this fascinating scientist from Discovery Institute Fellow and University of Alabama Professor Michael Flannery, whose book Alfred Russel Wallace’s Theory of Intelligent Evolution explores Wallace’s fundamental break with Darwin over whether evolution is intelligently guided. In addition to an extensive chapter placing Wallace in his historic context, Flannery’s volume provides an abridgment of Wallace’s book World of Life, which presents Wallace’s theory of intelligently-guided evolution. This December marks the centennial of the publication of World of Life.
