The Writings of Professor Robert M. Young
'The Meanings of Darwinism: Then and Now?'
Charles Darwin grew up in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and attended Shrewsbury School for seven years. The school held a Millennium Conference on 'Darwinism and Ethics for the Next Millennium' on 16 October 1999. Papers were given by Mary Midgley, Matt Ridley, Colin Tudge and me. There was a lively, civil and interesting discussion among the speakers and from the floor. In my paper I move back and forth between issues which arose around Darwinism in the nineteenth century and the claims made for a wider philosophy in his name in the present, in particular, the relationship between cultural explanations and those of Darwinian Psychology.
