Collected Essays of T.H. Huxley (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Huxley's "Collected Essays" gathers together the writings of one of the most important intellectual figures of the 19th century. Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) was a distinguished British biologist who was known as Darwin's "bulldog" for his defence and support of Darwin's theories following the publication of "On the Origin of Species" (1859). He devoted much of his career to defending Darwinism and related controversial subjects. As a great popularizer of science his influence was felt throughout the scientific, educational and political world in Victorian England. He can also be credited with inventing the term "agnostic". During his career, Huxley wrote prolifically on a great range of subjects. The nine volumes contained in this set reflect this; topics range from Darwinism, evolution and science to religion, biology, education and philosophy. H.L. Mencken, the prominent American newspaperman, book reviewer and political commentator, said Huxley was "perhaps the greatest virtuoso of plain English who has ever lived".

Originally published in 1893-4 as part of the Macmillan Eversley Series, with later editions subsequently published, these volumes can be rarely found together as a nine-volume set. This Thoemmes Press edition is a reprint of the first.
