Summary:Describes the impact of Darwin's theory of evolution and Huxley's defence of it on the Victorian intellectual life. Shows how developments in various scientific fields, including geology, anthropology and biology were helping to crystallize a new view of the nature of man, and the evolutionary theory came to be widely applied to social and economic problems. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
