An exchange on WHEE and Darwinism

October 27th, 2010 · No Comments

An email exchange on WHEE/4th and Darwinism from: H-WORLD@H-NET.MSU.EDU The Darwin debate is controversial, but times are changing, and a book such as Fodor’s What Darwin Got Wrong indicates a new wave of critiques of that theory. My citation of the Darwin debate was to free the study of history from the evolutionary psychology nonsense […]

Chapter 7 coming online

October 1st, 2010 · No Comments

Chapter 7 now coming online, but still needs proofing (the Index software from word collides with the webpage software, a hastle). But the rough spots are not too many, so you can start. We reach the end of the broad indication of the historical eonic pattern, called the eonic effect, whose structure gives us a […]

Modernity, an evolutionary irony. But will Darwin’s theory destroy secularism?

September 29th, 2010 · No Comments

Chapter 7 coming soon! Meanwhile the issue of history, evolution, and the enigma of modernity is nicely handled by the ‘eonic model’: Transition and Modernity The eonic effect and modernity is one of the most spectacular of theoretical claims/discoveries. The connection of the modern transition to evolutionary issues is ironic. Will Darwin’s theory destroy modernity?

Why Darwinism always flunks a history test

September 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Chapter Five of WHEE/4th edition coming tomorrow online. Meanwhile digest the foundations for a new kind of world history with the ‘theory’ integrated in the background. A Short History of the World Darwinism will never work on world history, and I think this passage makes it clear why. But if that is the case, the […]

World history flunks the randomness test

September 16th, 2010 · No Comments

Note: I hope to have Chapter Four of WHEE/4th up online soon, this week. Be clear about what is said here: the issue of the eonic effect is an empirical one. World history flunks the ‘randomness’ test, and a new a distinct kind of evolutionary system appears in its wake. Climbing Mt. Improbable: The Eonic […]

History and the meaning of evolution

September 7th, 2010 · No Comments

http://history-and-evolution.com/ Putting WHEE/4th online is not easy, with multiple link checks for each webpage, so it will take a few weeks. More selections on the way tomorrow, at least. In all the debates over evolution and ‘god’, the terms of discourse are lost to semantic muddle. As a result the term ‘evolution’ has become misdefined, […]

Fourth edition: man’s unfinished evolution

September 1st, 2010 · 5 Comments

A Glimpse of Evolution Get started with the online edition WHEE/4th. The point here is that history and evolution overlap, so speak. Further, human evolution is not yet complete, and is proceeding via civilization to the real completion of homo sapiens. The Janus-faced connection of history and evolution allows us to detect evolution in historical […]

Fourth edition, models, and an evolution formalism

August 31st, 2010 · 3 Comments

A passage from an email to a new reader of WHEE. For the online text, starting up, go to history-and-evolution.com The theory is more in evidence in the third edition, while the fourth uses only what I call an ‘evolution formalism’ which is just to one side next to a world history, starting in Chapter […]

August 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment

The issue of a non-profit book on evolution is important. Books on evolution always compromise, even if they are critical of Darwinism. It helps to get out of that racket, and look at the issues without the built in bias. I have put the first two chapters of World History And The Eonic Effect, Fourth […]
