Welcome to Version Two of The Alfred Russel Wallace Page, a website dedicated to celebrating the life and work of the English naturalist, evolutionist, and social critic Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913)!  The links to the left connect you to various kinds of information on one of the most fascinating figures in the history of science.

"Whenever we depart from the great principles of truth and honesty, of equal freedom and justice to all men whether in our relations with other states, or in our dealings with our fellow-men, the evil that we do surely comes back to us, and the suffering and poverty and crime of which we are the direct or indirect causes, help to impoverish ourselves."
(from Bad Times, 1885)

"Truth is born into this world only with pangs and tribulations, and every fresh truth is received unwillingly. To expect the world to receive a new truth, or even an old truth, without challenging it, is to look for one of those miracles which do not occur."
(from an interview of Wallace published posthumously in 1913)

New:  I have prepared a near-perfect pdf facsimile of the 1858 Ternate paper on natural selection, formatted exactly as it appeared originally. It is searchable, and suitable for reading online or printing out. It is available here.
