Description

The exciting THE LIBRARY OF CONTEMPORARY THOUGHT series tackles today's most provocative, fascinating, and relevant issues, giving top opinion makers a forum to say things that need saying. Topics include aging, war, law, and many others. 'A dazzling gem of cultural philosophy" In Rocks of Ages, internationally renowned bestselling author and evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould sheds new light on a dilemma that has plagued people since the Renaissance the tense battle between Science and Religion. In elaborating and exploring this thought provoking issue, Gould argues that in order to experience the fullness of being human, we must cultivate a meaningful balance between a life of the spirit and a life of rational inquiry; two realms, equally essentially but utterly different.
