Strangely enough reading this book has forced me to look again and how I feel about Richard Dawkins I read The Selfish Gene twenty five years ago and was immediately impressed Not so much with the science which was not actually Dawkins own but with the clarity with which the science was expressed For a good account of who developed the science in the Selfish Gene and how I recommend A Reason for Everything I was also impressed with the thoroughness with which the implications of the science were brought out Then the majority of people who were committed to the synthesis of evolutionary and genetic theory were committed to it as a matter of common sense rather than as a matter of ideology A great deal of the original argument over The Selfish Gene was between people who accepted evolution via genes but hadn t really accepted its implications The argument between Dawkins and theists came laterI read the Selfish Gene and thought I agreed heartily with what Dawkins was saying I read The Extended Phenotype and thought that was not only original but in accordance with my own vaguely pantheistic beliefs When the Blind Watchmaker came out I didn t understand why Dawkins had started picking fights with creationism the belief in a God who created the universe I thought that as long as one didn t have a literal belief in the creation story in Genesis and elsewhere there was no conflict between the theists account of biological diversity and the biologists God may not have individually designed each of the species we see around us but he could have created the fundamental physical and chemical laws that enabled their biological evolution So I never read The Blind Watchmaker or River out of Eden or heaven forbid the God Delusion I just didn t see the point But having read this book on Auinas I just might do so Because I guess now that the real argument between Dawkins and the theists is not about biology it s about what kind of universe we re living in a mechanistic universe or a teleological one and what that implies for us to live a good lifeA teleological universe is unfamiliar to me the idea in Auinas and I suppose in Catholicism that we are on a mission from God For all of my adult life I have seen myself living in a purposeless value neutral universe one that forces us to decide upon our own values and try to live in accordance with them Our values and our mission are constrained by our human nature our culture and our individuality and I have seen no evidence of a supernatural force imposing values and a mission from outside of ourselvesMy situation wouldn t surprise Auinas whose empiricism led him to argue that neither do we enjoy any intuition of the divine essence nor is the proposition God Exists self evident or analytic pg 109 Even so Auinas accepts that the empiricist way to God is difficult The first cause surpasses human understanding and speech He knows God best who acknowledges that whatever he thinks and says falls short of what God really is pg 131 So it s not so surprising that I may have overlooked God This Socratic agnosticism I also find a completely unfamiliar aspect of Catholic thinking what appears typical is the priest claiming both a special knowledge of and a special relationship with God Auinas s apprehension of God s goal for man came to me most clearly not in the section on God and Creation but in the section on Morality and Society and Auinas s account of Natural Law My view of natural law is no sophisticated than my view of human values the collective values that human societies express in law derive from our biological cultural and individual natures But for Auinas natural law derives from our nature as rational creatures rational values should override the animal impulses in our nature For law is defined as an occurrence of reason and irrational creatures being irrational cannot recognize and promulgate to themselves any natural law And the term is applicable not to the natural tendencies and inclinations of man on which his reason reflects but to the precepts which his reason enunciates as a result of this reflection These precepts are of course the existence and nature of God and the rational demands he makes of usBefore reading this book I was interested in discovering the relationship between Auinas s and Aristotle s thought Obviously the strict empiricism is derived from Aristotle and so are the virtue ethics But Auinas believes Christ asked us to aspire to than animal happiness and offered us a new set of virtues to help faith hope and charity These transcend the Aristotelean human virtues for they are virtues of a man in so far as he is made a sharer in divine grace pg 209 And it is the sharing in divine grace which is the ultimate telos for humanity Dawkins view of the universe excludes any such telos and that irrespective of any claims about the nature of the origin of life is the real issue theists should have with him

Having been forced to study Thomistic psychology in medical school I have always had a dim view of St Thomas Auinas Trying to understand Descartes led me to want to know about what he was reacting to and in this way back to Auinas Coppleston s presentation is clear and concise I now have a better idea about Auinas ideas about the soul and the passions I can t imagine a general reader getting into this book After al it sat on my shelf for 20 years before I found a reason to read it
