As Dr. Gattegno wrote The Science of Education treatise, he delved deep into the root of learning. This journey took him into the brain, through the ages, and caused him to greatly consider evolution and human potential. He put some of his findings aside for use in this book. Scientists of education may find this slim volume indispensable for their study of memory and its place in our ways of educating the young. "Looking at all the references made to evolution in my writings on education over 30 years, I now find here and there a link of what is cardinal in this book: that individuality is th

During the last 50 years, coincident with the Space Age, cosmic evolution has been recognized as the master narrative of the universe, history writ large. Cosmic evolution includes physical, biological, and cultural evolution, and of these the latter is by far the most rapid.  In this volume, authors with diverse backgrounds in science, history, anthropology, and more, consider culture in the context of the cosmos. How does our knowledge of cosmic evolution affect terrestrial culture? Conversely, how does our knowledge of cultural evolution affect our thinking about po

This first research project deals with the Human Genome Project, the genetic sequencing exercise of humanity. An extraordinary international project of biological science will add new, and undo old, knowledge about our evolution as a species. ’It is, though, a controversial subject, and we thought we would start in two phases. Dr Jeff Lever’s paper published here worries aloud whether we teach evolutionary theory properly and with sufficient depth to pupils and scholars at our schools. 0%ContentsIntroductionEvolution and Science at the Inception of the 21st CenturyDarwinism in So

This book is the result of a symposium held in Phila., PA, in April 1976, on the bicentennial of Amer. independence. It reviewed the contributions of evolution, systematics, quantitative genetics, ecology, & sociobiology to our understanding of the natural world. The papers identify fundamental shortcomings existing within each discipline. They suggest a need for an integration of these sciences & a more thorough testing within each discipline of the theory of evolution by means of natural selection. Papers are organized by theme: The Changing Scenes; The Influence of the New World on the Stud

While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planet, and life evolved and continue to evolve. Yet the teaching of evolution to schoolchildren is still contentious. In Science and Creationism, The National Academy of Sciences states unequivocally that creationism has no place in any science curriculum at any level. Briefly and clearly, this booklet explores the nature of science, reviews the evidence for the origin of the universe and earth, and explains the current scientific understanding of biological evolution.
