More About This Title Simply Darwin


Few ideas in the history of the world have had the impact of the theory of evolution through natural selection. In Simply Darwin, author Michael Ruse explores this revolutionary concept and the life of the man who will be forever associated with changing the way we see ourselves and our world, Charles Robert Darwin. In addition to providing a deep understanding of Darwin and his theory, Simply Darwin brings the story into the present, highlighting the contemporary relevance of evolutionary thought and illuminating its role in the current controversies over science and religion.


Michael Ruse is the Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Program in the History and Philosophy of Science at Florida State University. He is the author or editor of more than fifty books, including The Gaia Hypothesis: Science on a Pagan Planet, The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Darwin and Evolutionary Thought and Atheism: What Everyone Needs to Know.
