Tower of Babel

by Robert T. Pennock
Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2000. 451 pages.

The earliest comprehensive treatment of the intelligent design movement, Tower of Babel was praised by Frederick Crews in The New York Review of Books as "... comprehensive and consistently rational ... the best book opposing creationism in all of its guises" and by Evan B. Hazard in Choice as "[e]ssential reading for all social and natural scientists (especially secondary and college teachers), and also concerned pastors, seminarians, and seminary professors." Pennock, a member of NCSE, is Professor of Philosophy at Michigan State University and editor of Intelligent Design Creationism and its Critics; he testified for the plaintiffs in Kitzmiller v. Dover.
