Mind the Gap: Did Darwin avoid publishing his theory of evolution for 20 years?
April 10 (Friday) 7:30 p.m.
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.1151 Oxford Road.San Marino, CA. 91108. 626.405.2100
From the Huntington website: “It is widely believed that Charles Darwin avoided publishing his theory of evolution for many years because he was afraid of the consequences. John van Whye, director of The Complete Works of Darwin Online at Cambridge University, will discuss how “Darwin’s delay” is a recent historiographical theme for which there is no clear evidence. Van Whye will show that Darwin did not keep his belief in evolution a secret and that a fundamental chapter in the story of Darwin’s life and work needs to be re-written. Free. No reservations required. Friends’ Hall.”
