This course examines various interpretative shifts in the physical and life sciences from late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. The backbone of the course will involve a close reading of Darwin's 'Origin of Species' (1859) and Einstein's 'Relativity: The Special and General Theory' (1916) with special attention to the historical developments that led to the publication of these works, as well as their subsequent influence.
