Morality Science Context Stevenson His family included scientists, religious ministers and philosophy professors. The notorious Jack the Ripper murders occurred in London in 1888. There was discussion about the murderer being highly educated, or even of royal birth. Stevenson was a sickly child (he had serious lung problems) who read a great deal about travel and adventure. A combination of his love of adventure and ill health led him to spend many years as a writer travelling the world in search of a
climate that was healthier than Britain's. Reputation was a important factor in Victorian society. You social status and how well you were respected depended on how you conducted yourself. Many people in Victorian society saw science and a belief in religion and the supernatural as being at odds with each another. A lot felt they had to choose between the two. And many believed that science had become dangerous and was meddling in matters which only God had control over. In 1859 Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species. This book became famous for introducing the Theory of Evolution to the public. Many people saw
it as an attack on religion, because the book made it impossible to believe that God created the world in seven days. Historians now regard the Victorian era as a time of hypocrisy, due to an outward appearance of dignity and restraint together with prostitution and drug addiction. Even a Victorian contemporary, Ruskin, stated that the Victorians were remarkable hypocrites. This hypocrisy stemmed from the social expectations of the time, which were exceedingly high, one of which the intense desire to be a model Christian.
