Description: Charles Darwin's research was a turning point in the investigation into how nature works. But Darwin was far from the first person to have ideas about what we now call evolution. Nor did he give us the last word. This lecture looks at the evolution of evolution before Darwin, describes Darwin's contribution to that evolution, and then takes the story forward—through several ups and downs—to our own time. Along the way, we meet an eclectic collection of homo sapiens and related primates as well as other flora and fauna.
