George Darwin was the second son of Emma Wedgwood and Charles Darwin. His father was the author of On the origin of the species and, as a consequence, one of the most famous scientists of his time. George's mother Emma Wedgwood was from another famous family, being a granddaughter of Josiah Wedgwood who is famed for his world famous pottery. George was, therefore, in the words of one of his brothers [2]:- ... born in the scientific purple. Now Charles and Emma had strong views on education, being very much opposed to the classical style of education of the time and yet feeling that they did not wish to conduct educational experiments with their own children. After much indecision, they sent George's older brother to Rugby and George was sent to a school in Clapham run by the Rev Charles Pritchard who later became the Savilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford [2]:- Pritchard was about that time attracting the attention of thoughtful men by his pioneer work in scientific education.

Darwin, Charles (1809-1882)

English naturalist who was the grandson of Erasmus Darwin and father of physicist George Darwin . Darwin did poorly in school, and so could not secure employment following his graduation from divinity school. However, he was able to secure a position as ship's naturalist aboard the H. M.S. Beagle. The Beagle A Naturalist's Voyage on the Beagle (1839). Darwin, reflecting on his observation, developed a theory of evolution. According to this theory, individual variability means that some organisms have a slight advantage over others. The advantage will allow the organisms to compete better in the "struggle for existence" and produced more offspring, which will inherit the advantageous qualities. The process whereby favorable traits in the most "fit" animals allow it to survive and reproduce, Darwin called "natural selection." He included the idea of "sexual selection" in his theory, stating that the struggle for possession of females will lead the most vigorous males producing the most progeny. Darwin was probably influenced in his formulation of evolution by the Uniformitarian views expressed in Lyell's Principles of Geology

A Presentation By George Dyson
In examining the prospects for artificial intelligence and artificial life Samuel Butler (1835-1902) faced the same mysteries that permeate these two subjects today. "I first asked myself whether life might not, after all, resolve itself into the complexity of arrangement of an inconceivably intricate mechanism," he recalled in 1880, retracing the development of his ideas. "If, then, men were not really alive after all, but were only machines of so complicated a make that it was less trouble to us to cut the difficulty and say that that kind of mechanism was 'being alive,' why should not machines ultimately become as complicated as we are, or at any rate complicated enough to be called living, and to be indeed as living as it was in the nature of anything at all to be? If it was only a case of their becoming more complicated, we were certainly doing our best to make them so." These questions can be distilled into one essential puzzle: the origin of life. "We wanted to know whence came that germ or those germs of life which, if Mr. Darwin was right, were once the world's only inhabitants," asked Butler "They could hardly have come hither from some other world; they could not in their wet, cold, slimy state have traveled through the dry ethereal medium which we call space, and yet remained alive. If they traveled slowly, they would die, if fast, they would catch fire."

He was a member of the Darwin-Wedgwood family , most famously including his grandson, Charles Darwin He was born near at Elston Hall near Nottingham . he was educated at Chesterfield School then later at St. John's College Cambridge . He obtained his degree at Edinburgh Medical School . He settled in 1756 as a physician at Nottingham, but meeting with little success he moved in the following year to Lichfield. He practised medicine in Lichfield in Staffordshire for twenty years; George III invited him to be royal physician but he declined. In he moved to Derby , where he died suddenly on the 18th of April 1802. His most important scientific work is his Zoonomia (1794-1796), which contains a system of pathology , and a treatise on generation, in which he, in the words of his famous grandson, Charles Robert Darwin , anticipated the views and erroneous grounds of opinions of Jean-Baptiste Lamarck . The essence of his views is contained in the following passage, which he follows up with the conclusion that one and the same kind of living filaments is and has been the cause of all organic life :

Erasmus Darwin (1731 - 1802)
After studying at Cambridge and Edinburgh, Darwin established his medical practice in Lichfield. It was an immediate success, with patients travelling considerable distances for his consultations. At one stage he was offered - and refused - the post of royal physician to George III. Medicine notwithstanding, he had an extremely broad range of scientific interests. He was a founder member of the Lunar Society, whose members included some of the greatest innovators of the age: Josiah Wedgwood, Matthew Boulton and James Watt, and Joseph Priestley, who discovered oxygen. His own inventions and ideas varied enormously. A horizontal windmill invented in 1765 was made and used by Josiah Wedgwood. A carriage that would not tip over was designed in 1766. In 1771 he invented a speaking machine, a canal lift for barges and a minute artificial bird. In 1778 he came up with a copying machine and a variety of weather monitoring machines that included a north-south airflow machine and a weather vane with the pointer in his study. During the following decade his work continued. In 1783 he invented an artesian well and conducted research into the formation of clouds, the latter of which he published in 1788. Despite his many innovations, however, he retained no patents. He felt they would have harmed his reputation as a doctor and instead encouraged his friends to pursue his ideas; they then patented their own, modified, versions.
