Summary: No other scientific theory has had as great an impact on our understanding of the world as Darwin's theory outlined in his Origin of Species. Yet the theory has been the subject of controversy from its very beginning.

ed historically through the fierce contemporary debates continuing to rage.

  • Written in a style accessible to the non-specialist
  • Potential to be adopted as textbook in philosophy of science courses
