DARWIN The ORIGINAL Get inside the mind of a scientist at the Cité des Sciences in Paris
Shocking, intriguing and scandalous in the 19th century...
Charles Darwin’s discoveries about the evolution of life were profoundly innovative in his time. They are still influencing life sciences and earth sciences today.
So how did he come to oppose the ideas of his time, in spite of himself? What did he observe during his travels to explain the diversity and evolution of living creatures? Why did he emphasise so strongly the link between mankind and other living things? Why was he interested in the age of the Earth?
Get inside the life and mind of one of the greatest scientists in history. And through his journeys, you can find out how he made his discoveries.
