Wallace and Darwin


Click Here

Article reads: Darwin and Wallace were very different men. But I think the defining difference between them is that, while Darwin focused on understanding the mechanism of evolution, Wallace considered its legacy. He knew that that legacy includes our minds, our societies and the totality of our living planet, and that by virtue of its complex interactions, it is far greater than the sum of its parts. Wallace was the greatest holistic thinker of his age, and he deserves to join Darwin in the scientific pantheon.
