How to Read Darwin
Mark Ridley (au)
Charles Darwin’s permanent legacy is his broad, abstract theories of evolution & natural selection, theories which he tested against an astonishing array of natural history evidence in his writing. Here, Mark Ridley uses a question & answer approach to explain how Darwin carefully tackled problems, & shows how the reader can understand Darwin’s arguments by first working out what question Darwin had implicitly set himself to answer. Ridley concentrates on extracts from Darwin’s two most important books, “The Origin of Species” & “The Descent of Man,” & also introduces us to Darwin’s lesser known works, on topics as diverse as animal domestication to earthworms, to writing on the human condition.
