Even if you don't buy into Evolutionary theory, didn't you ever wonder why so many of the very religious Victorians finally did? How did this dangerous little theory ever gain a foothold? I meet so many people that think Evolutionary theory is some sort of plot against the Bible? This book tells the tale of how and why so many Victorians with all their stuffiness and high morals were finally convinced. It is about Darwin ,Huxley (and many others) and the science and politics of this time.
I think William Irvine does a great job at bringing us into the private lives of the people involved, I did find myself a little lost in family details at times.
Though it trudges along, it seems appropriate. For that's how finally Evolutionary theory came to be recognized, one fact after another after another after another........

The seller delivered it on time and in conditioned promised. I would buy from them again.

The great minds...around whom the intellectual holocaust of the 19th century revolved...are at the center of this superb study, a portrait in full of the men and the era which gave birth to the theory of evolution.
One, Charles Darwin, was the introverted genius whose Origin of Species rocked Victorian England and revolutionized scientific theory; the other, Thomas Huxley, was the brilliant scientist, essayist, and orator who with tongue and pen subdued Darwin's critics and became his public defender.
Working with vast amounts of material, published and unpublished, William Irvine has skillfully combined history and biography. He shows how dissimilar they were in character...Darwin, the shy, industrious, plodding scientist who assembled enormous masses of scientific data and spent hours dissecting a barnacle with infinite patience; and Huxley, his vigorous, eloquent advocate, who with fiery tongue lashed out at such formidable foes as Bishop Wilberforce and William Gladstone to gain acceptance for scientific and Darwinian ideas.
With urbanity and wit, Professor Irvine describes in vivid detail the lives, both public and private, of these two men. He gives full, colorful accounts of Darwin's courtship and marrage, his orchid research, the writing of the Origin, and his final recognition and honors. There is a parallel re-creation of Huxley's family and personal life, his scientific voyage aboard the Rattlesnake, his visit to the U.S., his vigorous debates before the Metaphysical Society.
A masterpiece of these two great men and the era in which they lived.

You probably know what Darwin had for breakfast. But what do you know about the contribution of Thomas Henry Huxley? What do we know of the man and not just his work?

The book contains several photos and a portrait of Huxley. We also get a picture of the Beagle and Darwin.

Although out of date and superceded by a considerable number of later scholarly works, this account of Darwin and Huxley and the generation of the Origin is still interesting, and profitably read, although some of the views (e.g. the account of the Huxley/Wilberforce debate) have undergone severe revisions.
