About this book

Examines the identity of the `man of science' in the Victorian period as it was shaped by Thomas Huxley, leading naturalist and notorious populariser of Darwinian theory. White provides a substantially different view of Huxley's role in the evolution debates, and of his relations with his scientific contemporaries, especially Richard Owen and Charles Darwin.


Introduction; 1. Science at home; 2. Gentlemen of Science? Debates over manners and institutions; 3. Science as culture; 4. The worship of science; 5. 'Darkest England': Science and labor in the 1880s and 1890s; Conclusion: the end of the 'man of science'.

'! cogently argued account ! Paul White has created a sensitive and multifaceted portrait of Huxley ! A particular strength ! is the treatment of Huxley's relationships with Owen and Charles Darwin. ! One of the most consistently developed aspects of White's portrait is the depiction of Huxley as a defender of high culture ! beautifully written and persuasive account !'
