  • The Origin of Lifeby Paul Davies

    Penguin Books Ltd 2006; Not Available

    The origins of life remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of science.

But the question remains: how can life spring into being from non-living... more...

    Does one planet really matter among the immensity of the Cosmos? John Gribbin is here to persuade us that it does.

The... more...

  • Life's Grandeurby Stephen Jay Gould

    Random House 2011; US$ 14.16

    In his characteristically iconoclastic and original way, Stephen Jay Gould argues that progress and increasing complexity are not inevitable features of the evolution of life on Earth. Further, if we wish to see grandeur in life, we must discard our selfish and anthropocentric view of evolution and learn to see it as Darwin did, as the random but... more...
