    does the book claim that the wallace's theory is so radically different from darwin's that there is absolutely no way in hell that darwin was influenced by wallace?

    if so i dont think i see a point in reading something so idiotic. if not your point doesnt go anywhere.


    is it a book saying that wallace's theory and darwin's theory have a different emphasis in their theories or their slightly different visions on what natural selection accomplishes?

    if so i dont see point in reading something every ap bio course teaches.


    my point is no invention or idea has to be completely original to have an impact on the world. my other point is that all inventions and ideas are never completely original, but this lack of originality does not mean they cannot have a big impact on the world

    can't remember FW11, but pretty much everything Phillip Lim does rips on Dries. Which is cool in my book, because Dries is awesome! The sincerest form of flattery and all that jazz... Woah just read about Wallace, he sure did have pretty similar ideas as Darwin! Scandal!

    Incredible, right?

    In any case, I refuse to use the sarcasm meter. It's lame, like having a laugh track.

    uh darwin came up with his theory like 10 years before wallace... so i don't think wallace was influencing him...

    i doubt you're reading this book in ap bio (or I would really, really hope not).

    La la la.

    Wallace definitely influenced Darwin, and Wallace actually supported Darwin's work, but their ideas were actually quite different. The idea of natural selection between individuals, and the idea of external environmental stresses being the driver the evolutionary changes, are different in a subtle, but powerful, way. Actually, even now, most people mistake Wallace's ideas for Darwin's (which are more difficult to grasp).

    It was either the history or philosophy of science that was going to be my graduate minor.

    Er, you're not entirely correct. Their ideas were all evolving at around the same time.

    Darwin wrote his theory in the late 1830s, no? And Wallace didn't began working until the late 1840s.

    Even those within evolutionary biology probably don't care. Much more interesting things going on, especially in microbial evolution right now.

    mainly just these people care:


    Anyway, wanna talk about Anja Rubik?

    It was a continuum. Darin started his work in the 1830s, and Wallace, in the 40s, but their ideas matured closer to 1860, and they were in correspondence

    Mr. Jobs was revolutionary. He led the revolution to put user experience first in computing and mobile. If this seems intuitive to you now, thank Steve.
