Evolution The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory summary Þ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Very of the DNA double helix and to the triumphant neo Darwinian synthesis and rising sociobiology todayAlong the way Larson expertly places the scientific upheaval of evolution in cultural perspective the social and philosophical earthuake that was the French Revolution; the development in England of a laissez faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world where religious fundamentalists litigate for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in US public schools even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directionsThroughout. Many books have traced the development of evolutionary ideas from the early stirrings in the late eighteenth century through the triumphal breakthrough of Darwinism This book does that and so much It continues through the scientific skepticism generated by developments in genetics paleontology and statistics during the following century that led eventually to the mid twentieth century Neo Darwinian synthesis that established evolution at the center of all biology Along the way Larson sympathetically recounts the non scientific resistance to Darwinism the pseudo scientific eugenics movement and the late twentieth century fundamentalist resistance to Godless science Brief descriptions of the major personalities add spice to the narrative but the focus remains on the scientific discoveries and theories and the scientific and non scientific responses to these ideas

Evolution The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory summary Þ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF “I often said before starting that I had no doubt I should freuently repent of the whole undertaking” So wrote Charles Darwin aboard The Beagle bound for the Galapagos Islands and what would arguably become the greatest and most controversial discovery in scientific history But the theory of evolution did not spring full blown from the head of Darwin Since the dawn of humanity priests philosophers and scientists have debated the origin and development of life on earth and with modern science that debate shifted into high gearIn this lively deeply erudite work Pulitzer Prize–winning science historian Edward J Larson takes us on a guided tour of Darwin’s “dangerous idea” from its theoretical antecedents in the early nineteenth century to the brilliant breakthroughs of Darwin and Wallace to Watson and Crick’s stunning disco. A sweeping history of the development of the theory and the personalities involved from Cuvier and his outstanding cranium to the cranky competitiveness of James Watson One of my favorite anecdotes is of the eccentric English theologian and proponent of theistic evolution William Buckland of whom Larson writes Buckland was a thoroughly rational Christian When encountering an alleged miracle of martyr s blood perpetually wetting the floor of a Roman Catholic cathedral he tested the hypothesis by licking the spot with his tongue Bat urine the Anglican cleric pronouncedLarson presents a layman s introduction to the theory with just enough detail to reuire some effort but not enough to shoo away dilettantes like myself More recent developments in genetics and the modern synthesis get a bit technical but not excessively so The book does what all good history of science books do it inspires the reader to learn
