Charles Darwin: His Life, Ideas and Influences

 Life of Darwin PosterWednesday 24th February 2016  7.30pm
The Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

With Natural Science Lecturer David Croman.
What drove Darwin, a quiet respectable gentleman who was a pillar of his parish, to develop and embrace one of the most radical ideas in the history of human thought?
In this entertaining and informative presentation, David Croman will be bringing to life the extraordinary adventures and achievements of Charles Darwin. He will cover highlights of Darwin’s formative years and the ‘Beagle’ voyage, as well as considering the controversies surrounding the publication of Origin of Species and its effects on Victorian society. We will bring the evening to a close with an examination of Darwin’s continuing relevance and importance in our lives today.
David Croman is a psychologist, natural science lecturer, author, and wildlife photographer. His previous talks for Dorset Humanists on Sigmund Freud, Alfred Russel Wallace, and Robert Fitzroy were well received, and we're sure this one will be too.

Join us for a fascinating evening as David Croman relates the extraordinary life and achievements of Charles Darwin”
