Charles Darwin's the origin of species: new interdisciplinary essays

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 211 pages
This volume marks a new approach to a seminal work of the new modern scientific imagination. Darwin's central theory of natural selection neither originated nor could be contained within the natural sciences, but continues to shape and challenge our most basic assumptions about human social and political life. Seven readings, crossing the fields of history, literature, sociology, anthropology and the history of science, demonstate the complex position of the text within the cultural debates past and present.
