Human nature, Person, Science, Evolution, Morality, Sacred, Roger Scruton
This essay examines Roger Scruton's On Human Nature in relation to the tension between modern science and the ordinary experience science aims to explain. Scruton regards the person as emerging from biological realities and tries to defend the integrity of common sense notions of human distinctiveness against reductive interpretations of evolutionary biology.
