“The Intelligent Design Debate and the Temptation of Scientism” is the title of my book in Routledge´s Science and Religion series, was published by Routledge in 2016.
The book is meant to be a balanced and deep analysis of this controversial debate, arguing that whether nature is purposefully created or not is fundamentally a theological and philosophical issue, not just a question for the natural sciences. My hope is that all sides of the debate will find it interesting and useful.
Here are a few endorsements of the book:
“This ground-breaking book epitomizes the balanced, scrupulous, and fair-handed intentions of the author. Kojonen analyzes the underlying philosophical and theological issues which structure the debate in order to lift up the strengths and weaknesses of both advocates and opponents of Intelligent Design. I highly recommend this book to theologians, philosophers, scientists and non-specialists who want to hear ‘good news’ about the underlying connections on a topic which far too often divides both scientific and religious communities.” – Robert John Russell, the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, USA
“This is the most comprehensive, scholarly monograph on Intelligent Design to date, and Kojonen’s well-balanced analysis is a welcome addition to the literature. This book is the best place for students and scholars to start if they are trying to understand the arguments surrounding ID.” – Jeffrey Koperski, Saginaw Valley State University, USA
