Book description

The naturalist and geologist Charles Darwin (1809–82) ranks as one of the most influential scientific thinkers of all time. In the nineteenth century his ideas about the history and diversity of life - including the evolutionary origin of humankind - contributed to major changes in the sciences, philosophy, social thought and religious belief. This volume provides the reader with clear, lively and balanced introductions to the most recent scholarship on Darwin and his intellectual legacies. A distinguished team of contributors examines Darwin's main scientific ideas and their development; Darwin's science in the context of its times; the influence of Darwinian thought in recent philosophical, social and religious debate; and the importance of Darwinian thought for the future of naturalist philosophy. New readers will find this a most convenient and accessible guide to Darwin. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Darwin.

Reviews

‘… the contributions are largely drawn from excellent writers and are very accessible. It would be hard to imagine a much more effective or authoritative Companion to Darwin.’

Source: Research News and Opportunities in Science and Theology

'This is a comprehensive guide to the man, his life and his influence on modern science. It is easy to read and should be the first port of call for anyone with an interest in Darwin.'

Source: Reference Reviews

'The essays collectively provide an excellent conspectus of the state of the Industry. The essays all survey their territories in exemplary fashion, at the same time showing something of what is being done at their boundaries. … if you are a would-be member of the Darwin Industry you must read this book.'
