Michael Ruse is the author of more than a dozen books on evolution and creationism, including Darwin and Design: Does Evolution Have a Purpose? (Harvard, 2003), Can a Darwinian Be a Christian? (Cambridge, 2004), and The Evolution-Creation Struggle (Harvard, 2005). His new book, Darwinism and Its Discontents, is forthcoming from Cambridge in 2006. A longtime opponent of creationism in the classroom, Ruse was a state witness in the 1981 case in Arkansas that led a federal judge to outlaw the teaching “creation science” in public schools. He teaches the history and philosophy of science at Florida State University.
