Has a Frog a Soul?

Gelesen von Carl Manchester

Thomas Huxley, known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his championing and development of Darwinism, was perhaps the most important Victorian biologist after Darwin himself. This speech to the Metaphysical Society in 1870 is one of Huxley’s best known texts outside the sphere of his specialism, and remains read today by students of philosophy. In it, Huxley argues from the results of vivisection to metaphysics. (Summary by CarlManchester) (0 hr 16 min)


Has a Frog a Soul?


Read by Carl Manchester


(5 Sterne)

Quite amazing anatomical experiments, though rather awful for the frogs. Definitely not what I expected but an interesting piece of thinking of the time. A knowledge or diagram of frog brain anatomy in front of you while listening would be helpful to follow it. Other negative reviews are either Christians afraid of different views to their own or people without the patience to take it for what it is.
