Contents:
Introduction -- The making of a Victorian naturalist -- Wallace's evolutionary philosophy -- The making of a Victorian spiritualist : multiple directions and inevitable tensions -- Land nationalization to socialism : the ethics of politics and the politics of ethics -- Toward a synthesis : Wallace's theistic evolutionary theology.
Summary: Codiscoverer of the theory of evolution by natural selection, Alfred Russel Wallace should be recognized as one of the titans of Victorian science. Instead he has long been relegated to a secondary place behind Darwin. Worse, many scholars have overlooked or even mocked his significant contributions to other aspects of Victorian culture. With An Elusive Victorian, Martin Fichman provides the first comprehensive analytical study of Wallace's life and controversial intellectual career.
