VIDEO: Darwins Landscape Vision by Michael Summerfield

“Although the reputation of Charles Darwin has been based very largely on his contributions to biology, his main interests in the early part of his scientific life were actually geological, with a particular focus on the form of the earths landscape and how this might provide insights into the nature of the earths interior. This is apparent from the emphasis on such observations in the copious notes he made during the Beagle voyage, and in his early publications, such as his book on coral reefs and his major paper on the Parallel Roads of Glen Roy. But his reliance on form to infer process and to establish logical causal connections and temporal sequences may have had a broader significance for his approach to biological questions, and perhaps even influenced some of his psychological work.”
