Evolution, Games, and God explores how cooperation and altruism, alongside mutation and natural selection, play a critical role in evolution, from microbes to human societies. Inheriting a tendency to cooperate and self-sacrifice on behalf of others may be as beneficial to a population’s survival as the self-preserving instincts of individuals.

"With stem cell research, Dolly the cloned sheep, in vitro fertilization, age retardation, and pharmaceutical mind enhancement, humankind is now faced with decisions that it has never before had to consider. The thoughtfulness, or lack of it, that we bring to those decisions will largely determine the future character of the living world. Brutes or Angels will facilitate informed choice making about the personal use of biotechnologies and the formulation of public policies governing their development and use. Ten biotechnologies that impact humans are considered: stem cell research, embryo selection, human genomics, gene therapies, human reproductive cloning, age retardation, cognition enhancement, the engineering of nonhuman organisms, nanobiology, and synthetic biology. With deft and assured use of metaphors, analogies, diagrams, and photographs, James T. Bradley introduces important biological principles and the basic procedures used in biotechnology. Various ethical issues--personhood, personal identity, privacy, ethnic discrimination, distributive justice, authenticity and human nature, and the significance of mortality in the human life cycle--are presented in a clear and unbiased manner. Personal reflection and group dialogue are encouraged by questions at the end of each chapter, making this book not only a general guide to better informed and nuanced thinking on these complex and challenging topics but also an appropriate text for bioethics courses in university science departments and for adult education classes." -- Publisher's description.

Our world now and throughout history has had conflicting accounts of the nature of God and man's relationship to this cosmic deity. These conflicts have wrecked havoc within the societies of humanity to dangerous levels. Mankind has relied upon his sacred and canonized scriptures to provide doctrinal absolutes for his religions, but these absolutes differ and therefore cannot possibly all be correct, at least in specific contexts. However, there exist a very mysterious book circulating worldwide that does have specific, detailed, and consistent answers to all of our questions. The origin of this book is steeped in mystery and no human author has claimed ownership to its teachings which cover 2097 pages of intensive reading and exhaustive information. This book is known as the Urantia Book and has been placed in the public domain. The Urantia Book takes us from the conceptual locations within our segregated religious heritage and correctively re-calibrates our various belief systems which have been unavoidably limited and distorted by our world-views throughout human history. After its conceptual enhancements and adjustments, the Urantia Book enlarges such informational details into an elevation of more exact universal levels of perception as an advancement of cosmic truth. "Consider What the Angels Say" takes this expansive and intricately complicated book and presents a timesaving presentation of its teachings and gently correlates it with Christian doctrines and other religions as well as human philosophy and knowledge. In this book, the following questions will be answered. What exactly is God and how does this phenomenon relate to infinite reality, the time and space cosmos, other spiritual beings, and our world? Exactly what is the Godhead Trinity and why is it a necessary foundation for the existence of universal reality? What are angels and spiritual principalities? What are their levels and types, and how do they interface and interact between supernatural and human situations? How does the historical Jesus Christ fit into the spiritual dimensions of reality. How is he related to the one eternal God and how is Jesus an integral part of our soul salvation? How was man physically created and what accounts for the variances in human biological races and how does this correlate with the theory of evolution? What is the nature of the human soul and how is it translated into the eternal spiritual realities and how does it exist beyond death and what is its destiny? How did mankind come to develop and organize his cultures and what part did supernatural spiritual beings play in the formulations of man's religious doctrines? Why has there been so much tragedy, hardship, war, disease, and social discord throughout our history? What is the nature of sin and why does evil even exist. Something is not right, what went wrong? In all of the versions of religious theologies and doctrines worldwide, no one book explains the details of these universal mysteries as completely and systematically as the Urantia Book, it is truly a gift from the angels. Consider What the Angels Say is a concentrated effort forged from the heartfelt love and concern for humanity to introduce this majestic angelic book to all who are able to receive and benefit form its supernatural information.

The Fall Of The Spirits Of Darkness

Speaking at a time of intense war in Europe, Rudolf Steiner reveals the spiritual roots of the crises of our times and the means by which we can overcome them. Since 1879, Steiner tells us that "backward" angels, or "spirits of darkness"--who were forced out of the heavens and made their abode on Earth following their defeat in a forty-year battle with the Archangel Michael--have influenced human minds. It is now possible for human beings to awaken more consciously to the truth of these profound changes and thus inwardly counter the fallen spirits' influences. We can come to the realization that definite spiritual causes lie behind earthly events in our rapidly changing times. In these fourteen lectures, given at the end of 1917 following four years of war in Europe, Steiner speaks on the complex spiritual forces behind the World War I, humanity's attempts to build theoretically perfect social orders, and the many divisions and disruptions that would continue on Earth into our own time. Humanity in general was asleep to the fact that fallen spirits, cast from the spiritual worlds, had become intensely active on Earth. This manifested mainly in human thinking and perception of the surrounding world. However, the defeat and fall of these spirits also ensured that a science of the spirit would always be available to humanity.

By studying evolution across geological time, paleontologists gain a perspective that sometimes complements and sometimes conflicts with views based solely on studies of extant species. The contributors to Causes of Evolution consider whether factors exerting major influences on evolution are biotic or abiotic, intrinsic or extrinsic. Causes of Evolution presents a broad sampling of paleontological research programs encompassing vertebrates, invertebrates, and vascular plants; empirical work and theoretical models; organisms ranging in age from Cambrian to Recent; and temporal scales from ecological time to hundreds of millions of years. The diverse array of research styles and opinions presented will acquaint scientists in related fields with the strengths and weaknesses of paleontology as an approach to evolutionary studies and will give evolutionary biologists of every stripe new bases for evaluating the scope and bias of their own work.

Queer Beauty

The pioneering work of Johann Winckelmann (1717-1768) identified a homoerotic appreciation of male beauty in classical Greek sculpture, a fascination that had endured in Western art since the Greeks. Yet after Winckelmann, the value (even the possibility) of art's queer beauty was often denied. Several theorists, notably the philosopher Immanuel Kant, broke sexual attraction and aesthetic appreciation into separate or dueling domains. In turn, sexual desire and aesthetic pleasure had to be profoundly rethought by later writers. Whitney Davis follows how such innovative thinkers as John Addington Symonds, Michel Foucault, and Richard Wollheim rejoined these two domains, reclaiming earlier insights about the mutual implication of sexuality and aesthetics. Addressing texts by Arthur Schopenhauer, Charles Darwin, Oscar Wilde, Vernon Lee, and Sigmund Freud, among many others, Davis criticizes modern approaches, such as Kantian idealism, Darwinism, psychoanalysis, and analytic aesthetics, for either reducing aesthetics to a question of sexuality or for removing sexuality from the aesthetic field altogether. Despite these schematic reductions, sexuality always returns to aesthetics, and aesthetic considerations always recur in sexuality. Davis particularly emphasizes the way in which philosophies of art since the late eighteenth century have responded to nonstandard sexuality, especially homoeroticism, and how theories of nonstandard sexuality have drawn on aesthetics in significant ways. Many imaginative and penetrating critics have wrestled productively, though often inconclusively and "against themselves," with the aesthetic making of sexual life and new forms of art made from reconstituted sexualities. Through a critique that confronts history, philosophy, science, psychology, and dominant theories of art and sexuality, Davis challenges privileged types of sexual and aesthetic creation imagined in modern culture-and assumed today.
