Abstract:

This paper compares the paths that Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin travelled to arrive independently at the same conclusion, namely, that life forms had evolved, the mechanism being the formation of new species by natural selection. Their different backgrounds and approach to natural selection are explored together with their differing philosophies. Wallace's life, his discoveries and other interests are highlighted and form the basis from which the comparisons are made.
