First edition. A beautifully written biography from which emerges a tragic-romantic figure of Darwin: "Darwin delivered his generation from the Egypt of an oppressive anthropomorphic theology. Men did not understand in the moment of their liberation that a mechanomorphic materialism might prove even more confining"(p. 329).
