The story starts with the salad course, and by dessert, you're tired of the set up and wish he'd just get George Levine, literary critic and author of Darwin and the Novelists, attempts to answer the question of the lack of meaning of life after god is replaced by nature red in tooth and claw. George Levine.
Book Darwin Loves You Natural Selection And The Re Enchantment Of The World
The entire family is numb, staring at their plate, paralyzed by boredom? This is that uncle. I was unable to make it past the first chapter, where he managed to repeat himself pretty much every paragraph, making the same point over and over and saying next to nothing except that Darwin could bring enchantment back into the world - secular enchantment. This after getting so incredibly wrong the fact of how evolution happens - his statement that the individual evolves, not the species, is the sort of ignorance and misunderstanding you sort of learn to expect when English professors try to write about science, apparently without consulting scientists on the topic, since no scientist worth their salt would let that stand.
