Product Description

How do the many exciting recent scientific discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, evolutionary biology, genetics and paleoanthropology challenge and complicate - but also enrich and illuminate - the traditional Christian portrait of human nature?

In Rethinking Human Nature an international team of scientists, historians, philosophers, and theologians presents both the wisdom of the past and the cutting edge of present and developing scientific research to explore answers to this vital question. Their discussions - examining our brains, our genes, our ancestors, our societies, and more - will help us develop a more nuanced and complete understanding of what it really means to be human.

Editorial Reviews

Francisco J. Ayala
— University of California, Irvine
"Traditional Christianity regards humans as created in God's image. Evolution holds that humans came about by descent from nonhuman ancestors. Can these two views be reconciled? Rethinking Human Nature is a multi-authored collection of essays exploring how reconciliation might be achieved from multiple perspectives — scientific, archaeological, philosophical, theological. The essays are insightful yet eminently readable. A great read!"

Richard Bauckham
— University of St. Andrews
"No serious study of human nature can confine itself to one academic discipline. The contributions of philosophy, the natural and human sciences, paleontology, and theology are all needed, but rarely are they all brought together. This outstanding volume contains up-to-date contributions from distinguished scholars in all these fields. . . A landmark contribution to our current task of rethinking human nature in the light of both what we have long thought and what we have only just begun to envisage."

J. Wentzel van Huyssteen
— Princeton Theological Seminary
"The attempt to understand the nature of human nature is now at the heart of one of the most important interdisciplinary discussions of our time. . . This book will benefit all of us who are committed to improve our understanding of the human condition and the rather distinctive phenomenon of embodied personhood that is at the heart of it."
