Rocks of Ages, Paperback


Writing with characteristic bracing intelligence and clarity, Gould sheds new light on a dilemma that has plagued thinking people since the Renaissance.

Instead of having to choose between science and religion, Gould asks, why not opt for the golden resolution that accords dignity and distinction to both?

In elaborating and exploring his thought-provoking concept, Gould delves into the history of science with stories of figures as Galileo and Darwin, and concludes that science defines the natural world, and religion our moral world.
