Charles Darwin Bi-Centennary

As you know, today is the bi-centennial anniversary of that eminent Victorian Charles Darwin's birth. The lecture slides from Wednesday on our Anthology's extract from the Decent of Man, on its theory of sexual selection, are online here.

An idea of his current cultural footprint can be gotten from the usually-sensible (and always indispensable) Arts & Letters Daily, which, for the Darwin anniversary, has turned effectively hagiographical. Search for "Darwin" on their main page for a sense of this.
