The book's purpose is straightforward: using Foucault's epistemes and Kuhn's paradigms as organizing principles(chp 1) look at the life of Charles Darwin as an example of a man between worlds: the old episteme of creationism and the new biological paradigm of positivism/5(3).

The main problem with all these stories is that they were all denied by members of Darwin’s family.

In the closing paragraph of certain editions of The Origin of Species, there appears a reference by Charles Darwin to a “Creator.”The passage reads as follows: There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity.
