Darwinian Myths: Science and Religion 150 years On

One hundred and fifty years after it was written, Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species continues to sell, to be discussed, attacked and defended. Among the many myths that surrounds Darwin’s book is the idea that it caused a war between science and the church. Jim Endersby will demolish this and some of the other myths that surround the Origin, by looking at exactly what Darwin did and didn’t say, and at the way his contemporaries reacted to the book.


JIM ENDERSBY is the award-winning author of A Guinea Pig’s History of Biology (2007), and of Imperial Nature: Joseph Hooker and the Practices of Victorian Science (2008) and he has edited a new edition of the Origin of Species (Cambridge University Press, May 2009). He was an adviser on the recent BBC television series, The Story of Science and he teaches the history of science at the University of Sussex, UK.
