Abstract

Evolutionary theory is considered as one of the greatest scientific achievements in history of science on par with the theory of heliocentricism, general and specific relativity, and the theory of plate tectonics. However, public controversy over teaching evolutionary theory urges science educators to consider conceptual, epistemic, worldview/religious, and social/cultural factors simultaneously when teaching about evolutionary theory. In this book, we aimed to explore the influence of social and cultural domain on evolution education.
