Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Charles Darwin, the Copley Medal, and the Rise of Naturalism, 1862-1864, thrusts students into the intellectual ferment of Victorian England just after publication ofThe Origin of Species. Since its appearance in 1859, Darwinrsquo;s long awaited treatise in ldquo;genetic biologyrdquo; had received reviews both favorable and damning. The Darwin game illustrates the tension between natural and teleological views of the world, manifested especially in reconsideration of the design argument commonly known through William Paleyrsquo;sNatural Theology or, Evidences of the Existence and Attributes of the Deity(1802) and updated by Wilberforce. But the scientific debate also percolates through a host of related issues: the meaning and purposes of inductive and hypothetical speculation in science; the professionalization of science; the implications of Darwinism for social reform, racial theories, and womenrsquo;s rights; and the evolving concept of causation in science and its implications for public policy. Because of the revolutionary potential of Darwinrsquo;s ideas, the connections between science and nearly every other aspect of culture becomes increasingly evident. Scientific papers and laboratory demonstrations presented in Royal Society meetings during the game provide the backdrop for momentous conflict that continues to shape our perceptions of modern science.
