Abstract
Despite considerable research into this famed naturalist’s life and work, the metaphysical views of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823–1913) remain controversial. This paper seeks resolution in Wallace’s experiences in the Malay Archipelago that presaged his own turn towards a comprehensive natural theology. Abstract available for download below.
