    Hemostatic regulation and Whitehead's philosophy of organism.James A. Marcum & Geert M. N. Verschuuren - 1986 - Acta Biotheoretica 35 (1-2):123-133.
    Biology as a scientific discipline has relied heavily upon advances in chemistry and physics. An inherent danger in this relationship is the reduction of living phenomena to physico-chemical terms. Whitehead's Philosophy of Organism is utilized to examine current methodologies within biology and to evaluate their appropriateness for future research. Hemostatic regulation is employed to illustrate the applications of organistic concepts to biological research. It is concluded that understanding of living entities and their properties as well as possibly life itself will (...)

  3. Darwin's Philosophical Legacy: The Good and the Not-so-Good.Gerard M. Verschuuren - 2012 - Lexington Books.
    There is hardly any university, college, or even high school left where they do not teach Darwinism—and rightly so. Yet, most of these places do more preaching than teaching. They teach more than they should, and at the same time, they teach less than they should. This book wants to evaluate Darwin’s legacy from a philosophical viewpoint by trying to analyze the strong points as well as the weak points of what came to be known as neo-Darwinism.

  7. The destiny of the universe: in pursuit of the great unknown.G. M. N. Verschuuren - 2014 - St. Paul: Paragon House.
    Using the latest scientific discoveries and theories of astronomy and genetics, the author discusses the nature of life and the universe and asks big questions like, 'Why are we here?' It is both a critique of scientific atheism, and a scientific argument for the "unknown" that people call 'God'.
