Egget Auditorium

Daniel Chourrout - “Why is Darwin important?”
Darwin has not discovered the concept of evolution, and his hypothesis to explain the mechanisms of heredity has been refuted.
Darwin's major contribution is the theory of natural selection. This presentation briefly recalls the importance of this theory and
comments the exceptional longevity of Darwinism.
