Martinez Hewlett, Ph.D.

In this course, Dr. Hewlett argues that there is a need for the consideration of purpose and intelligence in Biology. Through a brief history of the sciences, a summary of the basic concepts of Biology, and a concentration on Genetics and the Human Genome Project, he illustrates for the student the wonderful advances of modern science. But while doing so, he emphasizes that however advanced it becomes, Biology will never be able to answer all questions about life and should always be subjected to an overarching philosophy.
