Description
 
Charles Darwin’s book about his grandfather, “The Life of Erasmus Darwin,” is curiously fascinating. Erasmus Darwin was one of the leading intellectuals of the 18th century. He was a respected physician, a well-known poet, a keen mechanical inventor, and a founding member of the influential Lunar Society. He also possessed an amazing insight into the many branches of physical and biological science. Most notably, he adopted what we now call biological evolution as his theory of life, 65 years before Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species.” This book is not a narrative biography, but rather a series of illuminating insights into Erasmus Darwin’s life and work, with quotations from letters and candid comments by Charles Darwin.
