Inspiring, awesome, rare, synthetic, but clashes with Claude Bernard's view that you cannot apply mathematics to biology because it is too complex, However, that clashes with Francis Bacon's view, and lauded by Bernard, that inductive reasoning solves problems.

In public, Darwin professed to being Newtonian, but in his diary and letters to friends, candidly noted that reasoning is eveything, such that "Origins' was 'one long argument." A contemporary wrote that "Origins" is incomprehensible.
