Was Hitler a Darwinian?, Paperback (November 2013)
According to the standard interpretation, the principle of survival of the fittest has rendered human behavior, ultimately selfish. Few doubt that Darwinian theory, especially as construed by the master's German disciple, Ernst Haeckel, inspired Hitler and led to Nazi atrocities. The author argues that this orthodox view is wrongheaded.
Darwinian Heresies, Paperback (December 2010)
This 2004 book traces the history of evolutionary thought, and challenges many long-established assumptions.
Tragic Sense of Life, Paperback (September 2009)» View all books by Robert J. Richards
With detractors ranging from paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould to modern-day creationists and advocates of intelligent design, Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) is better known as a divisive figure than as a pioneering biologist. This biography rehabilitates Haeckel - focusing on his science and art. It also gives an account of Haeckel's eventful life.
