Description

Darwin's Legacy

September 22, 2008 introductory lecture by William Durham for the Stanford Continuing Studies course on Darwin's Legacy (DAR 200). Professor Durham provides an overview of the course; Professor Robert Siegel touches upon "Darwin's Own Evolution;" Professor Durham returns for a talk on "Darwin's Data;" and the lecture concludes with a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Lynn Rothschild.

Published in 1859, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution rocked the academic world. This film examines the life of Charles Darwin, tracing the development of his big idea, evolution, and examining the paradox of the conventional man who developed one of the most revolutionary ideas in science. It also explores the changing impact of the ideas of Charles Darwin, revealing how different political thinkers have seized on the theory of evolution to justify their proposed models for society. Before Darwin, Victorians believed that God created and placed all species on Earth and gave man dominion over animals. But Darwin's radical ideas challenged the status quo and have since influenced radically different models for society.
