Larson ´ 0 Free read “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

Larson ´ 0 Free read 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. This books provides a nice overview of the history of biological science over the past 200 years with a focus on genetic science as it transitioned from philosophical speculation to evidence based science What I found interesting and entertaining was how various opposing theories of the mechanisms of genetic inheritance were gradually synthesized over the decades Some of those who dedicated their lives to oppose other s theories never knew that beyond their lifetimes their theories were synthesized with their opponents Everyone eventually was right in some way and sometimes wrong in other ways The book is a bit outdated already due to rapid ongoing discoveries in this field For example findings of recent genetic studies related to gene switches show that Darwin s basic ideas about genetic changes to DNA occurring during the lifetime of an organism were not completely wrong as they were thought to be for a long timeAs much as I enjoyed this book due to my limited brain capacity to remember details these days I found the following eyewitness book to be in some ways a better summary that was easier to follow and remember the key events Plus it has pictures I recommend the eyewitness as a coles notes version of the subject
