9780147509772: Darwin : Portrait of a Genius

Acclaimed historian and biographer Paul Johnson turns his keen eye on Charles Darwin, the towering figure whose work continues to spur scientific debate. Johnson's biography is already causing a stir on the pages of Slate and New Scientist, and has become a voice in the public discussion of evolution popularised by the likes of Richard Dawkins. Lay readers and academics alike will enjoy this concise and unflinching exploration of Charles Darwin, a genius whose discoveries add significant dimension to our understanding of his mind and his everlasting impact on our world.

A riveting (The Wall Street Journal) biography of one of the most influential and controversial scientists in Western history Acclaimed historian and biographer Paul Johnson turns his keen eye on Charles Darwin, the towering figure whose work continues to spur scientific debate. With his publication of On the Origin of Species, Darwin forever changed our concept of the world. While Johnson praises Darwin s extraordinary skills as a natural scientist and his monumental achievements, he does not sidestep Darwin s tragic failures as an anthropologist. Johnson argues that by applying his theory of natural selection to humans, Darwin provided a platform for the burgeoning eugenics movement. Lay readers and academics alike will enjoy this concise and unflinching exploration of Charles Darwin, a genius whose discoveries even the flawed ones add significant dimension to our understanding of his mind, the era in which he lived, and his everlasting impact on our world.
