Darwin - In A Nutshell

Charles Darwin, philosopher of man and nature…

The Beagle, a small ship of 250 tons…

He also continued to work on other phenomena…

Over the five years following his return…

Further support for this view…

Second, he could not accept that all changes…

As Darwin drew all these insights…

We know that he had told his wife Emma…

It has been argued that Wallace…

He finds a grandeur in this view…

If this were true of the scientists…

Darwin himself of course took little or no part…

By the 1870s Darwinism…

These were major advances…

Darwin was buried in Westminster Abbey…

The Guardian

“A useful instant bicentenary guide, which gives you exactly what it says on the tin: family history, biography, succinct synopsis of what natural selection really means and what effect it had on the Victorian establishment. At the 1860 Oxford debate, Bishop Wilberforce asked Thomas Huxley, “Darwin”s bulldog”, if he was descended from apes on his father’s or his mother’s side. Vicious stuff, and it’s still raging.”
