What Darwin didn't know( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Honoring the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's revolutionary, Origin of species, this BBC special confirms how the advance of science has exonerated Darwin's theory of evolution. Challenged by his peers such as Richard Owen, and criticized by skeptics, such as Fleeming Jenkin, Darwin acknowledged the inconsistencies in his initial theory. He appealed to future generations to draw inspiration from his findings and to solve the challenges with which his controversial theory was riddled. Scientists such as August Vicemon, Gregor Mendel, Ronald Fisher, Bill Hamilton and Ernst Haeckeland used Darwin's theory to give us new scientific fields, tools and understanding of the natural world. What Darwin didn't know will provide students with an historical understanding of Darwin's world and his legacy to future scientists who embraced Darwin's heretical ideas to give us modern science

An electrical engineer, university teacher and wide-ranging writer, Fleeming Jenkin (1833-85) filed thirty-five British patents in the course of his career. Edited by Sidney Colvin (1845-1927) and J. A. Ewing (1855-1935) and first published in 1887, this two-volume work brings together a selection of Jenkin's varied and engaging papers. The collection ranges from notes on his voyages as a marine telegraph engineer, to a critical review of Darwin's On the Origin of Species, essays on literature, and thoughts on technical education. A memoir written by Robert Louis Stevenson, his former student, provides biographical context and attests to Jenkin's many interests and talents across the arts and sciences. Volume 2 includes Jenkin's papers on political economy, scientific education, and applied science, notably marine telegraphy. Abstracts of his scientific papers, along with a list of his patents, form an appendix to the volume
