Lynn Margulis

The Life and Legacy of a Scientific Rebel

by Dorion Sagan

Praise

"Although she could be a bulldog, her heart was soft and her spirit loving beneath the scientific realpolitik of her conversation and the insistent tough-mindedness of her sometimes strident and blunt, withering and refreshingly unadorned opinions."

Dorion Sagan, from the introduction


"Lynn and I often argued, as good collaborators should, and we wrangled over the intricate finer points of self-regulation, but always remained good friends, perhaps because we were confident that we were right."

Dr. James Lovelock, contributor, and author of The Vanishing Face of Gaia


It was life—profligate, teeming life in all its weirdness—that held the magic for her, not this featherless biped with its confused aspirations. Lynn intuited and doggedly gathered evidence to show that most anything we two-leggeds take special pride in—our capacities for cogitation, conviviality, and culture—had been invented, eons before, by the microbial entities that compose us.

David Abram, contributor, and author of Spell of the Sensuous


"It's the ideas that really matter—and Lynn certainly had hers. They were novel and profound, and she simply wanted all the rest of the world to adjust their thinking to accommodate and embrace what she saw were the simple, beautiful truths that she had uncovered."

Dr. Niles Eldredge, contributor, and author of Darwin: Discovering the Tree of Life


"I hope that in due time she will be recognized as one of the greatest scientific thinkers of our time."

Ernest Callenbach, author of Ecotopia


"I can't imagine what the world of biological science in the twentieth century would have been had Lynn Margulis not come along. In this volume, we can read about some of the vast range of intellect she influenced."

Wes Jackson, president, The Land Institute
