Straw Dogs - by John Grey

from Baxter - Wednesday, April 21, 2004
accessed 1307 times

For anyone still holding on to their faith- even in diluted humanist form, I highly recommend reading this book!

PS. Not the story from the Peckinpah Film.

I don't know how many of you might consider yourselves to be confirmed Darwinists, but if you have any interest in the relevent argument, I suggest you read this book. It's an exploration from scientific as well as philosophical perspectives on the discrepancies of Humanism, which the author argues is merely an extension of religious notions upheld, for the most part, by organised Christianity. The author's position is one of unapologetic Darwinism, but his prose is fluid and unsentimental, which makes his point much more crystalline, albeit at times quite hard to accept.

Most of the diatribe is directed at exploding the myth of 'progress' as the defining differentiation between man and the animals.

The Author is a professor at LSE. If you still find yourself thoughtlessly clinging to any imparted assertions that we exist with any specific purpose as a race or species that separates us from nature, read this book.
