Were Nineteenth-Century Natural Sciences Global? The Casus of Charles Darwin

In my paper I refute Arjun Appadurai’s assertion that one can speak of the global character of phenomena only in reference to the twentieth century. I defend a thesis that nineteenth century English natural science satisfies the basic criteria of ‘globality’ as defined by Appadurai. I analyze the work of Charles Darwin (until 1859) as a typical representative of nineteenth-century English natural science.
