Event description

Description

Charles Darwin is much more than the account of a charming, shy, rich naturalist who lived in the reign of Queen Victoria and had many remarkable insights. It is, in part, the story of the intellectual life of the West over the last two centuries. Darwin was himself the product of his times, and as he acknowledged, he formed his biological theory not just on the basis of biology but by the study of the work of social economists.

Darwin made claims about who we, the human race, actually are. To this extent, he was the creator of a myth as powerful as that of the Bible.

Join the bestselling author of ‘Victoria: A Life' as he discusses his reappraisal of Charles Darwin, using his acclaimed understanding of the Victorian era to bear on the most controversial scientist of modern times.
