Description
Darwin's theory of evolution was based to a considerable extent on the work of scientists who preceded him, such as Jean Hunter, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, Georges Cuvier, Patrick Matthew and Edward Blyth. Dempster contends that his ideas were essentially those of Lamarck, and that although Darwin 'did a great service in bringing together in one volume a vast amount of the scientific information of his day . . . there is nothing original'.
