About this book

There are few aspects of the modern world that remain untouched by Charles Darwin's legacy. His ideas have affected everything from science to religion, and have influenced debates about ethics, animal welfare and nature versus nurture. But who was Charles Darwin, and why has he remained such a pivotal and controversial figure, over a hundred years on from his death? How has Darwinism changed psychology, biology and the behavioural sciences? Lance Workman, an expert in evolutionary psychology, explores these questions in this thought-provoking introduction to the life, works and legacy of one of science's greatest thinkers. It is essential reading for anyone interested in evolution and the human condition.
