AUTHOR

Aveni, Anthony F.

SUMMARY

The great divide between teaching "intelligent design" and evolution in U.S. schools has brought to the public eye a struggle that author and archaeoastronomer Anthony Aveni argues is as old as culture itself. All societies seek to understand the natural world, but their searches are shaped by culturally distinct views and experiences. Uncommon Sense demonstrates that a society's approach to making sense of the natural world can serve as a working definition of its culture, so strongly does it resonate with fundamental values and assumptions. In ten fascinating essays, Aveni examines topics that have absorbed scientists, religious figures, and ordinary citizens over the centuries. Readers interested in science, history, and world cultures will revel in Aveni's exploration of the common and conflicting ways that ancient and contemporary societies have searched for the literal truth about the natural world's mysteries from dinosaur bones to the Star of Bethlehem.Aveni, Anthony F. is the author of 'Uncommon Sense Understanding Nature's Truths Across Time And Culture', published 2006 under ISBN 9780870818288 and ISBN 0870818287.
