"Researched thoroughly and documented carefully . . . Livingstone's analysis of Shaler's writings will be useful to all interested in the broad connections among science, theology, and philosophy.""--Scientist
"Livingstone judges Shaler's proper place in the advance of American science. From his post at Harvard, Shaler coached the development of geography and its extensions into geology, ecology, and anthropology throughout the last quarter of the 19th century, and Livingstone attempts to sort out what should properly be credited to Shaler on a playing field crowded with legendary scientists. . . . [F]or the historian of any of these subjects, this work may well prove a gold mine.""--Science Books and Film
"Very well written and based on sound scholarship, through documentation, and thoughtful interpretation. . . . Livingstone's fine and exhaustive work and his sensitive interpretation may well be regarded as definitive in establishing Shaler's niche in the philosophical culture of American science.""--Earth Sciences History
