com: Asking About Life: 0030270448 Good Condition. Allan Tobin's undergraduate degree from MIT is in literature and biology and his doctoral degree is in biophysics with an emphasis on physical biochemistry. For more than 35 years he has taught introductory courses in general biology, cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, and neuroscience.

Archbishop Tobin said it would be helpful to develop a spirit of discernment among us, reading the signs of the times and places in the light of the faith, and being able to talk about that and asking ourselves, what is God’s will?

Using an inquiry-based approach, this text emphasises experimentation - those who grasp the experimental underpinnings of biological concepts find it easier to assimilate new information. This second edition has been updated, with new coverage of ecology.

Outstanding book. Makes biology & the study of life very interesting. Great detail, but not overwhelming. Many illustrations that are first class & very instructive. Highly recommend.

I don't know how I got this for $4 when the asking price is now $200 but I did! I bought it way in advance for one of my classes because it was the one everyone had used. Unfortunately my luck was not on my side and a newer version was used for the class instead. It's a bummer because it was a nice textbook. On the bright side I sold this book and actually made a profit off it. :)

I don't usually review (or even read) textbooks. However, in researching a forthcoming book, I've spent a lot of time with Tobin and Dushek's Asking About Life. It's made my life much easier.
As those who are familiar with Asking About Life know, this is a textbook with a philosophy. That philosophy is to present biology not as a canonical set of facts about life, but as a dynamic, ongoing dialogue with nature, in which real people who happen to be scientists ask meaningful questions and take understandable steps over time to discover answers to them. The book mixes an engaging narrative style, a strong historical perspective, great examples, and authoritative factual knowledge into an eminently readable, extremely informative, and scientifically impeccable text. As a result, a student or reader can turn to this book not simply to learn about the structure of DNA or how the human immune system functions, but also about Rosalind Franklin's role in discovering the double helix and about why HIV "continues to perplex medical researchers." And, as shown by the book's section headings (How Do Zygotes Cleave? How Does Gastrulation Set Up the Three-Layered Structure?), it embodies the truth that the best scientific questions start not with "what" but with "how."
Asking About Life is also full of beautiful, crystal-clear photos and illustrations, many of which, like the text, do a wonderful job of depicting not just static objects, but dynamic processes.
I can't imagine a better biology textbook.

The book was new and I found out later that a similar new book like this one would retail for $125 and I got it for $13.50. I got a deal!b

Vitalism is a profoundly science-ejected concept, though many CAM or 'natural health' cabals falsely claim that vitalism survives scientific scrutiny.

I quote:

"nineteenth century chemists firmly believe that all biological processes were chemical in nature. To believe otherwise, to insist on some mysterious role for living organisms that was not purely chemical in nature, was condemned as vitalism -- the belief that living systems have powers beyond those of nonliving systems [p.109...] modern biologists reject vitalism, the belief that living systems have powers beyond those of nonliving systems [p.124]."

This book was in great shape! The pages seemed like they were brand new. I really liked it. There were a few highlighted spots but that did not bother me at all.
