Adams, Joseph P.
This is an in-depth course of study of the historical attempts to explain the evolutionary process and of recent developments pertinent to the study of biomedical evolution. Topics included in the module are: (1) ancient concepts of the evolutionary process; (2) various aspects of Lamarckism, Darwinism and neo-Darwinism, including substantiating arguments for Darwinism and opponents to Darwinism; (3) biochemical evolution, and (4) metaphysical considerations concerning aspects of evolutionary theory. The course is designed primarily for students interested in doing advanced work in biology or in biochemistry. The majority of the course was derived from "The Orion Book of Evolution" (Jean Rostand), "Space Life Sciences" (Cyril Ponnamperuma and Norman Gabel), and "The Science of Biology" (Paul Weisz). Thirteen performance objectives are cited. An extensive course outline is presented which includes the presentation of numerous theories related to evolutionary process. Audio-visual aids including films, transparencies, and equipment are suggested. A master sheet coordinates the entire curriculum event. (Author/EB)
