Just put up a new research project that I recently finished in one of my Stanford introductory writing classes. It examines Darwin's theories of natural selection and evolution evaluated in the context of the philosophical precepts of Francis Bacon and Rene Descartes. In it, I discuss how Darwin's theories brought about a revolution in how science was conducted and how radical new ideas were debated within society. I also explore how society must find a new definition of God due to the deemphasis of man in the universe.
Pretty interesting if I do say so myself! Take a look, either on the project page, or below.
Let me know if you have any questions.
