Mans Place in Nature
Known as 'Darwin's Bulldog' for his impassioned defense of evolutionary theory, Thomas Huxley published this, his most famous book, just a few years after Darwin's The Origin of Species. Unlike Origin, this book focuses on human ancestry and offers a concise, nontechnical survey of mid-nineteenth-century knowledge about primate and human paleontology and ethology. It concurs with Darwin's assertion of the absence of a physiologic and psychic structural line of demarcation between humans and apes, and ventures even further, applying the principles of evolution directly to the human race. A landmark of scientific progress, this immensely readable book reflects the stylistic gifts that made its author a popular public speaker.
