Originally published in 1995, The Antievolution Works of Arthur I. Brown is the third volume in the series, Creationism in Twentieth Century America. The volume brings together original sources from the prominent surgeon and creationist Arthur I. Brown. Brown discredited evolution as it was contrary to the ‘clear statements of scripture’ which he believed infallible, stating evolution instead to be both a hoax and ‘a weapon of Satan’. The works included focus on Brown’s polemic through his early twentieth century writings. The essays focus on his scientific investigations and provide a negative commentary upon Darwin’s theory of evolution instead focusing on biblical explanations for evolution. As a scientist Brown’s unique view of evolution from a creationist and scientific viewpoint provides a fascinating lens through which to view the historical debates surrounding evolution and provides a unique insight into how Darwinian theory affected both the scientific and religious communities. This book will be of interest to natural historians, and theologians as well as academics of philosophy and history.
