Abstract

During his lifetime (8 January 1823 to 7 November 1913), Alfred Russel Wallace was publicly acclaimed as the independent discoverer (as he put it), or co-originator with Charles Darwin, of the theory of evolution by natural selection, first outlined by a joint presentation at a meeting of the Linnean Society on 1 July 1858. In the decade leading up to the centenary of his death, there has been a literary outburst, including new biographies, anthologies, an academic review, journal articles, conferences and debates, radio broadcasts and TV programmes. Abstract available for download below.
