This book tells the story of the most formative period of scientific discovery - the 19th century - when scientific ideas dominated thought. The author looks at the pervading atmosphere of the time when arguments became as characteristic of science as they had been of philosophy - arguments between scientists and theologians about evolution, between the British and the French about chemistry and astronomy, between the Germans and the British about taxonomy, between scientists and sceptics and even between scientific associations.
