In episode 18, I talked about the development of evolutionary theory leading up to Darwin and his contemporaries. Now it’s time to turn to the man himself.
So with the background… well… in the background, I’ll talk about what Darwin did and didn’t do. I’ll also talk about a number of cases in which people in subsequent centuries have (and continue to) wrap various other theories in Darwin’s name — in attempts to either win their theories some respect, or to smear Darwin and his work.
