David Berlinski was raised in New York City, educated at Columbia College and received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Princeton University. He later became a Fellow of the Faculty in Mathematics and a Post Doctoral Fellow in molecular biology at Columbia University. He has taught philosophy, mathematics, and English at Stanford, Rutgers, Columbia, the Universite de Paris at Jussieu, the University of Puget Sound, the University of Santa Clara, San Jose State University and San Francisco State University.
He has been a fellow at both the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis and the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques. He is the author of works on systems analysis, differential topology, theoretical biology, analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of mathematics, as well as the author of "A Tour of the Calculus," "The Advent of the Algorithm," and "Newton's Gift." Berlinski is currently a Senior Fellow with Discovery Institute.
The producers of the critically acclaimed documentary "Icons of Evolution" recently sat down for an interview with Dr. Berlinski. The interview was a lucid and entertaining critique of Darwinian evolution.
Some will find him persuasive, others simply inflammatory. Perhaps the best way to describe him would be from one of the nation's leading advocates of "Darwin-only Education." She called him "incorrigible."
