            In 1900, David Hilbert posed a set of 23 unsolved mathematical problems, thus setting an agenda for mathematics that lasted throughout the 20th Century. This book addresses the nature of Hilbert and his problems, and their significance for the progress of mathematics in our time.

            Darwin without Malthus: The Struggle for Existence in Russian Evolutionary Thought
             

            Darwin without Malthus: The Struggle for Existence in Russian Evolutionary Thought (Hardback)

            Nineteenth century Russian intellectuals perceived a Malthusian bias in Darwin's theory of evolution by means of natural selection. They identified that bias with Darwin's concept of the struggle for existence and his emphasis upon the evolutionary role of overpopulation and intr...aspecific conflict. In this book, Todes documents a historical Russian critique of Darwin's Malthusian error, explores its relationship to such scientific work as Mechnikov's phagocytic theory, Korzhinskii's mutation theory and Kropotkin's theory of mutual aid, and finds its origins in Russia's political economy and in the very nature of its land and climate. This is the first book in English to examine in detail the scientific work of nineteenth century Russian evolutionists, and the first in any language to explore the relationship of Russian theories to the economic, political, and natural circumstances in which they were generated. It combines a broad scope (dealing with political figures and cultural movements) with a close analysis of scientific work on a range of topics.
