Synopsis

Synopsis

With a foreword by Stephen Jay Gould
 
First published in 1859, Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution inalterably transformed our view of the history of life on the planet—and along with it, how we understand ourselves, our origins, and our place in the world. As we stand before the dawn of a new century, this theory is still the source of heated debate. In medicine, psychology, sociology, and politics, controversial new ideas are being espoused to claim Darwin for their legitimacy, while religious opponents continue to press for their alternative theory of “creationism” to be taught in the public schools. To being light where there has been much heat, What Darwin Really Said offers an excellent introduction to this great thinker’s discoveries, his view of human development, and the endurance of his theories against the test of time.

Praise

“Tremendous—probably the best brief book on the subject. Farrington manages to capture the essence and the excitement of Darwin and his discoveries.”
Choice
 
“An excellent blend of biography, science, history, and philosophy . . . The impact that Darwin’s work had on his world and still has on ours is carefully yet simply described.”
