ISBN 9781137464880
Publication Date August 2014
Formats Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF) 
Publisher Palgrave Pivot

For people accustomed to and tired of hearing conventional histories of Darwinian evolution, creationism and Intelligent Design theory where opposing camps dig in their heels and refuse to cooperate, this book provides a refreshing exercise in mutual aid and a provocative exploration of ideas. Human Extension offers a new look at the controversy over evolution as a biological theory, creation as a theological/worldview doctrine and evolutionism, creationism and Intelligent Design theory as social ideologies. Rather than presenting a polemic that will enrage or delight one camp or another, this book suggests a middle way that open-minded, explorative evolutionists, creationists and ID proponents can willingly embrace in their own ways. The claim, following Marshall McLuhan, is that every human being can identify with their own extensions and with the extensions of others. Human Extension proposes that a cease-fire is possible if all sides can agree on a productive way forward.

Includes a foreword by Steve Fuller.

Gregory Sandstrom is a Lecturer at the European Humanities University, Lithuania.
