Thanks to his family’s wealth and forbearance, Darwin could devote all his time to a passionate curiosity about the natural world. The young man’s physical and intellectual excitement on the “Beagle” voyage comes alive in this biography, as do the years of work that followed that mind-altering experience. His scientific studies and two major publications changed forever our view of life on earth and man’s place in the natural order. Aydon explains what “The Origin of Species” was about, and offers a ringside seat at the row that followed its pub’n. In an extended postscript, Aydon follows the changing fortunes of Darwinian theories according to fashions in intellectual thought, and in the context of 2 centuries of scientific speculation and discovery.
