Asa Gray’s Review of OoS

Andrew Sullivan links to Asa Gray’s original review of Darwin’s OoS in The Atlantic in July 1860. Interesting reading. Gray, one will recall, was a distinguished American botanist at Harvard. He was an early supporter of Darwin, an antagonist of Louis Agassiz at Harvard, and was a devout Presbyterian who one might call the first theistic evolutionist. His argument was that the variability on which natural selection works might be guided.
