Description
This collection of essays commemorates the work of Thomas Henry Huxley, who was already recognised as having transformed much of the world of English science when he died more than a century ago. His disputes with other thinkers of his day illuminate his efforts to legitimise the field, and to a significant extent we owe our modern respect for science and science education to his work. Fourteen original pieces assess Huxley's personality, marriage, scientific accomplishments, expression of values and contribution to science.
