About this book

Darwin: For the Love of Science is a collection of specially commissioned essays to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Charles Darwin, one of the world's greatest scientists. It forms part of the worldwide Darwin 200 programme in 2009 which looks back at Darwin's achievements, debates his findings, and seeks to develop further his theories. This accessible book takes its title from Darwin's own assessment of what had determined his success as a man of science: 'the love of science - unbounded patience... industry in observing and collecting facts - and a fair share of invention as well as common sense.' Though the tone of the book is celebratory, it does not shy away from criticism, whether with reference to the creationist argument that evolution is inherently false, the intelligent design argument that sees a role for a maker in the process or more scientifically rigorous challenges. But its main focus is Darwin's work and its impact, in the context of his own times through to the present day. There are over 250 illustrations, some rarely seen before.
