Now the rest of the chapter. Here Meyer takes a closer look at Darwin’s early intellectual opponent, Louis Agassiz. Why did the great Harvard paleontologist reject Darwin’s theory? Was he really, as some argue, a hidebound traditionalist, too mired in minutia and German idealism to catch the new wave? Learn why the historical evidence paints a very different picture.
