Celebrate Darwin’s bicentennial by exploring how Darwin ‘defined’ evolutionary biology
Two hundred years later, have the ideas of Charles Darwin endured?
Michael Ruse is one of the foremost Charles Darwin scholars of our time. For forty years, he has written extensively on Darwin, the scientific revolution that his work precipitated, and the nature and implications of evolutionary thinking for today. Now, in the year marking the two hundredth anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of his masterpiece, On the Origin of Species, Ruse reevaluates the legacy of Darwin in this collection of new and recent essays, DEFINING DARWIN: ESSAYS ON THE HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY (Prometheus Books, $26.98).
