Editorial Reviews


The intellectual movement known as the "Darwinian Revolution" embodied not only a great shift in biological theory, but also significantly affected established patterns of thought in theology, philosophy, social and political theory, literature and the arts in general. It led to a genuine restructuring of our "world-view" on a scale comparable with the "Copernican Revolution". Darwinian Impacts: An Introduction to the Darwinian Revolution takes the reader through the Darwinian theory of evolution and its place in the history of Western thought, its subsequent influences, and the general consensus among contemporary scholars as to the status of the theory and its role in biology. Darwinian Impact is of great relevance across a number of disciplines and will be read with understanding and appreciation by the non-specialist general reader. -- Midwest Book Review
