Event description

Description

A reappraisal of Charles Darwin. Wilson uses his acclaimed understanding of the Victorian era to bear on the most controversial scientist of modern times.

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. Likewise, ever since 1859, men and women have had reasons, for believing or rejecting Darwin's theories, which do not pertain simply to the theories themselves.


'Charles Darwin: Victorian Mythmaker' will be on sale for £20.00. A discount of £5.00
