Evolution without Tears - By David Ray Griffin

Evolution without Tears: A Third Way beyond Neo-Darwinism and Intelligent Design

This booklet makes available a paper presented by David Ray Griffin at the July 2006 International Whitehead Conference in Salzburg, Austria. In this paper, Dr. Griffin argues that the conflict betwen evolution and intelligent design has not been helped by failures to clear up ambiguities in such key terms as "evolution," "Neo-Darwinism," "naturalism," and "supernaturalism." Dr. Griffin argues that a Whiteheadian philosophy can help clear up these ambiguities and thereby point to a third way that could in principle be accepted by both the religious and scientific communities.

Why Whitehead? - (Not available at this time)

This is the title of a lecture delivered by John B. Cobb, Jr., at the 2003 Whitehead International Film Festival in Claremont, CA. The question is why a film festival would be named after a 20th-century philosopher with no professional connection to film. In this lecture, Dr. Cobb provides compelling reasons for Whitehead's relevance--not just to film but to the human community.
