***Darwin’s Footprint: a book by Dr Maria Zarimis***
Launched by Scientia Professor John Gascoigne (UNSW) and Dr Alfred Vincent
Synopsis: Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution revolutionised biology and deeply influenced modern thought. But how did Greeks react to it? Dr Zarimis discusses Darwin’s influence on concepts relating to the nation, language, culture and politics.
“The original and significant contribution [of] this book […] derives from the fact that so little has been written, so far, about the influence of Darwin’s writings and Darwinism on Greek literary and social culture” (Emeritus Professor Peter Bien). The event celebrates the centenary of the Greek translation of Darwin’s Origin of Species by Nikos Kazantzakis, one of the authors discussed in the book.
Date: Sunday 29 March
Venue: Gleebooks, 49 Glebe Point Road, Glebe
