The Architect and the Scaffold: Evolution and Education in South Africa (African Human Genome Initiative series)

This publication brings together thinkers and experts such as Wieland Gewers, President of the Academy of Science of South Africa and Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Cape Town; High Court Judge Denis Davis who looks at evolution from a “somewhat dissident Jewish perspective”; Professor Caroline Odora-Hoppers, whose passionately pleads for the education of our children to include indigenous knowledge; and a myriad of curriculum developers, book publishers, teachers and religious scholars.

Description

The Architect and the Scaffold advances the limits of public discourse to provide insight into the challenges which evolution and research into the human genome poses to education in South Africa.
