Description
DARWIN AND DARWINISM
** available as of 06/30/2021
Charles Darwin wrote The Origin of Species at a time when John Herschel, William Whewell and John Stuart Mill were attempting to articulate the inductive method of Newtonian science. This seminar explores this major revolution in biology in both philosophical and historical context examining both Darwin's texts, notebooks and letters as well as the intellectual, social and political contexts of the 19th century. We will also consider the content and contexts for subsequent developments of Darwinism in the 20th and 21st centuries.
