Thomas Henry Hux­ley was an English biologist (comparative anatomist). He was the most effective supporter of Darwin's Theory of Evolution and had a strong interest in scientific education - in schools, universities, and for the general public . He has been described as "the pre­mier ad­vo­cate of sci­ence in the nine­teenth cen­tury [for] the whole Eng­lish-speak­ing world". This volume consists of popular lectures he gave on biology and geology and addresses he delivered on the same subjects to scientific bodies. (Summary by barbara2)
