Synopsis:
English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) has long been known as the foremost defender of Darwin's theory of evolution. The many controversies swirling around evolution in the Victorian age often found Huxley as "Darwin's Bulldog, " in the intellectual, institutional, and political limelight. In this engrossing investigation of Huxley's motivations in science, Sherrie L. Lyons shows him to be, first and foremost, an advocate of scientific reasoning. Because Huxley's contribution to developmental morphology continues to be crucial in studying problems in comparative anatomy, embryology, paleontology, and evolution, this book is essential to students of Darwin, Huxley, and the scientific enterprise.
