Darwin's Ghost
"Charles Darwin published his culture-shaking Origin of Species in 1859. It immediately provoked a passionate controversy. This is hardly surprising. The Darwinian culture shock can be compared to an earlier one: the Copernican one. Copernicus made people see the earth as one of several planets circling the sun, rather than as the center of the universe. Darwin placed humanity squarely within the animal kingdom rather than outside it as its master. "
