George John Romanes

Author Code: EGJR

Born: May 19, 1848 - Kingston, Ontario, Canada

Died: May 23, 1894 - Oxford, England

Educated at Cambridge University where he studied philosophy and medicine, Romanes received his BA in 1871. While at Cambridge, he met Charles Darwin and the two became close friends. Although holding strong religious convictions, Romanes was eventually converted to evolutionary theory by Darwin. From 1874 to 1876 he studied at University College, London and undertook research on the nervous and locomotor systems of invertebrates. In 1878, he published A Candid Examination of Theism, a work critical of religious beliefs. Romanes is credited with coining Comparative Psychology and produced a number of works concerning psychology in man and the animal kingdom. In 1879, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1890, he moved to Oxford for health reasons and established the Romanes lectures, which are still running today. His other works include Animal Intelligence (1881), The Scientific Evidences of Organic Evolution (1882), Mental Evolution in Animals (1883), Physiological Selection: An Additional Suggestion on the Origin of Species (1886), Mental Evolution in Man (1888), Aristotle as a Naturalist (1891), Examination of Weismannism (1892), Darwin and After Darwin (1892) and Thoughts on Religion (1895 Posthumous).
