Search - List of Books by Benjamin Wiker

Benjamin Wiker (born 1960) is a Roman Catholic ethicist.

Little is known of Wiker's early life, but he obtained his PhD in ethics from Vanderbilt University and then came to teach at a variety of institutions including Marquette University, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, Thomas Aquinas College, and the Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Wiker came to attention in 2002 with the publication of Moral Darwinism: How We Became Hedonists. In this book, Wiker aims to show how Darwinism by its very nature completely undermines the ethical foundation of Christianity (or Judaism and Islam) because its materialist cosmology was incompatible with any concept of natural law. Wiker became a member of the Discovery Institute, a think tank supporting this idea, soon after the publication of the book.

His next major book, Architects of the Culture of Death, co-written with veteran Catholic ethicist Donald DeMarco, looks at how the most influential thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries from Schopenhauer to Peter Singer have undermined the Christian value of "sanctity of life". 2008's 10 Books That Screwed Up the World looks at fifteen important books from The Prince to The Feminine Mystique and aims, following Paul Johnson and E. Michael Jones, to show how the actual lives of these thinkers has led to fundamentally distorted views about human nature and especially sexuality. The Darwin Myth is a biography of Charles Darwin and aims to show how Darwin's own beliefs (notably on slavery and charity) and kindly character contradicted his own theories of evolution.
