Charles Darwin – Victorian Mythmaker - A N Wilson

Starting on October 05, 7:30 pm

Charles Darwin is much more than an account of a charming, shy, rich naturalist who lived in the reign of Queen Victoria and had many remarkable insights. It is, in part, the story of the intellectual life of the West over the last two centuries.

Darwin was himself the product of his times and he formed his biological theory not just on the basis of biology, but by the study of the work of social economists. Darwin made claims about who we, the human race, actually are. To this extent, he was the creator of a myth as powerful as the Bible.

Join award-winning biographer and celebrated novelist, A N Wilson who will share his knowledge and understanding of the Victorian era, its personalities and thought, to shed light on one of the most fascinating and disputed figures in history.
