Darwin in France
Contributions to a Theory of Cognitive Sociology


By Dominique Guillo

GEMAS Studies in Social Analysis
Hardback, November 2016, 182pp
ISBN 978-1-905622-34-4, £90.00

Thiis book reports the findings of a sociological research project into how French people understand "Darinism" and creationism, which reveals that while in France, people
generally agree with “Darwinism” or “evolution”, what ordinary people see as covered by these terms is very different from what scientists understand of the same concepts. However, this research shows that we should not overestimate the preciseness of their beliefs and the strength of their commitment to this issue. Their understanding of these ideas is in reality somewhat blurred, and often linked to a form of indi erence, which invites both a critical re-examination of the views developed in cognitive science and the social sciences on the relationship between science and everyday knowledge.
