Product description


...a detailed and specialised account...' Arts, The Herald '...Derry is able to point to the crucial influence that Enlightenment Edinburgh was to have on Darwin's developing mind.' Scottish Field 'An encompassing look at the time spent here by the father of evolution, it features interviews with God Delusion author Richard Dawkins, linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky, Astronomer Royal Martin Rees and Darwin's great-great-grandson RandalKeynes among others.' The Courier '...J. F. Derry has added a useful contribution, setting the scene as he does for the understanding of just how influential the city of Edinburgh was to the Pre-Cantabridgian student. Derry's book examines in close detail the contribution that the Scottish physical and intellectual landscape made to Darwin's development as a theoriser grounded in the collection and compilation of facts.' Palaemtological Association Newsletter
