Description

A study of the contribution to the secularization of Victorian culture made by John Tyndall, who, as a natural philosopher and colleague of Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley and Louis Pasteur, succeeded Michael Faraday as the Superindentent of the Royal Institution of Great Britain in 1870. Tyndall is recognized as central in the history of the establishment of scientific naturalism, contributing to the intellectual and cultural transformation of Victorian England. This volume examines the relation between theology and science, which occasioned a major shift in the way the self, nature, and the cosmos were understood.
