Science and Evolution
The Quantum Enigma, by Wolfgang Smith: Following upon the overthrow of the classical world picture by the findings of quantum mechanics, physicists have proposed a broad gamut of alternative world views. The present book begins with the major recognition that each of these suffers from a certain "residual Cartesianism" that has been smuggled in, as it were, unconsciously. It turns out, moreover, that the moment one discards this hidden and problematic premise, quantum theory begins to "make sense" in a way that it never has before. (Publisher)
