    A philosophical inquiry into the strengths and weaknesses of theism and naturalism in accounting for the emergence of consciousness, the visual imagination and aesthetic values. The authors begin by offering an account of modern scientific practice which gives a central place to the visual imagination and aesthetic values. They then move to test the explanatory power of naturalism and theism in accounting for consciousness and the very visual imagination and aesthetic values that lie behind and define modern science. Taliaferro and Evans argue that evolutionary biology alone is insufficient to account for consciousness, the visual imagination and aesthetic values. Insofar as naturalism is compelled to go beyond evolutionary biology, it does not fare as well as theism in terms of explanatory power.

    Charles Taliaferro, professor of philosophy (St. Olaf College), is the author or co-author or editor of fifteen books, including The Companion to Philosophy of Religion (with Paul Draper and Philip Quinn), The Image in Mind (co-authored with Jil Evans), and Evidence and Faith; Philosophy and Religion since the Seventeenth Century . He served on the editorial board of many journals, including Religious Studies and he serves on the American Philosophical Association Committee on the Status and Future of the Profession [of Philosophy]. Jil Evans is a visual artist whose paintings have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and in Europe and the co-author of The Image in Mind .
