This collection seeks to reconsider'and therefore recreate'histories of science in nineteenth-century Britain. Looking at science from an interdisciplinary perspective, the essays in this collection offer a fresh insight into how nineteenth-century science developed in Great Britain, suggesting the need for further research into this area. Moving away from a Darwin-focused history of science, these essays traverse the time span and disciplines, from history to religion to literature and art, to suggest how we can improve our understanding of scientific development in a particularly important decade in British scientific history.
