About this book

The basis for biology is embryogenesis--a method of organizing the matter responsible for the creation of life. This book brings attention to the gap between science's description of life as random and mechanical, and the depth of human experience. Other sections discuss genetic determinism; embryonic models of healing; the Islamic critique of Western science; and theories of consciousness and language. Offering Buddhist, phenomenological, and indigenous systems of thought as alternatives to neo-Darwinism, the cultural, philosophical, political, and ecological ramifications of embryos, genes, and evolution are explored.
