Thomas Huxley : making the "man of science" by Paul White( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dubbed "Darwin's Bulldog" for his combative role in the Victorian controversies over evolutionary theory, Thomas Huxley has been widely regarded as the epitome of the professional scientist who emerged in the nineteenth century from the restrictions of ecclesiastical authority and aristocratic patronage. Yet from the 1850s until his death in 1895, Huxley always defined himself as a "man of science," a moral and religious figure, not a scientist. Exploring Huxley's relationships with his wife, fellow naturalists, clergymen, and men of letters, White presents a new analysis of the authority of science, literature, and religion during the Victorian period, showing how these different practices were woven into a fabric of high culture and integrated into institutions of print, education, and research. He 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."--Jacket

The correspondence of Charles Darwin by Charles Darwin( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is part of the definitive edition of letters written by and to Charles Darwin, the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. Notes and appendixes put these fascinating and wide-ranging letters in context, making the letters accessible to both scholars and general readers. Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. The letters are published chronologically: volume 25 includes letters from 1877, the year in which Darwin published Forms of Flowers and with his son Francis carried out experiments on plant movement and bloom on plants. Darwin was awarded an honorary LL.D. by Cambridge University, and appeared in person to receive it. The volume contains a number of appendixes, including two on the albums of photograph sent to Darwin by his Dutch, German, and Austrian admirers
