Bloomsbury Scientists : Science and Art in the Wake of Darwin Paperback


Science and Art in the Wake of Darwin. Bloomsbury Scientists is the story of the network of scientists and artists living in a square mile of London before and after World War I.

This inspired group of men and women viewed creativity and freedom as the driving force behind nature, and each strove to understand this in their own inventive way.

Their collective energy changed the social mood of the era and brought a new synthesis of knowledge to ideas in science and art.

Class barriers were threatened as power shifted from the landed oligarchy to those with talent and the will to make a difference.
