Summary
It is appropriate that the late evolutionary scientist Stephen Jay Gould wrote the preface to this anthology of the writings of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913), for not only is Wallace considered one of the founders of the theory of natural selection, he was also passionately interested in a wide array of scientific topics and issues of social justice. Including the three papers widely regarded as his most important contributions to the theory of natural selection, the writings included here relate to agreements and disagreements with Darwin; discussions of biogeography; reflections on human evolution; explorations of spirituality and metaphysics; travelogues; arguments for socialism; and against the linked problems of capitalism, imperialism, and war.
