How Darwin Changed Science's Boundaries

On Friday and Saturday, New York University will host Darwin and the Boundaries of Science, a two-day conference that will "examine how Darwin's ideas have changed the boundaries of knowledge: between science and religion, between speculation and theory, between the past and the present, and between humans and the world around us."
Regular readers of this blog will recognize a number of the speakers, including Ron Numbers, Ed Larson, and Carl Zimmer, who "will discuss not just the content of Darwin's discoveries, but also the way these discoveries forever altered what counted as knowledge and what could be ultimately understood."
