A gifted thinker and communicator, Hinton was well placed to address the relationship between science and religion in an age when the two were pitted against each other. First published in 1859, the same year as the Origin of Species, Man and His Dwelling Place takes an ambitiously broad view of the human condition, addressing difficult topics from science, religion, philosophy and ethics. Hintons arguments against outdated ways of thinking and his approach to human nature were revolutionary, and he took pains to address readers doubts in a series of question-and-answer dialogues at the end of the book. Hintons impassioned plea for a bolder spirit of enquiry to better interpret human existence assures this book an important place in the history of science and the understanding of Darwins intellectual context.
