A personal view by J. Bronowski 9: The Ladder of Creation
' It cannot be an accident that the theory of evolution was conceived twice by two men living at the same time in the same culture, the culture of Queen Victoria in England.'
Where was the Garden of Eden? How did life begin on earth? World-shattering questions that sparked off the greatest controversy of the Victorian Age.
DR BRONOWSKI recounts the tropical adventures of that most entertaining and accident-prone of self-made naturalists, Alfred Russell Wallace, and how they triggered off the ideas of the more famous Charles Darwin. The blow to orthodox teachings was reinforced by the pioneer work of Louis Pasteur whose experiments amid the vineyards of his home in the French Jura find their echoes in the work of scientists today.
