CHARLES DARWIN - THE TRUE STORY
Dr. John van Wyhe
Christ's College, Cambridge
Director, The Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 21st
2:00 PM, Webb Hall 1100
This year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th of the publication of Origin of Species. Yet much of what is commonly known about Darwin is wrong. He did not discover evolution on the Galapagos, Darwin's finches were not the turning point, he did not keep his theory secret for 20 years, he was not trying undermine religion and he was not an atheist. This talk reveals the real Darwin and outlines what he really did and said in a clear and entertaining way.
