ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The Heretic in Darwin's Court: The Life of Alfred Russel Wallace," by Ross A. Slotten. Slotten errs in his chronology of events surrounding Wallace's first writings on spiritualism, in 1866, and his attempts to communicate them to his circle of friends and acquaintances. It has often been suggested that Wallace's spiritualism was the main cause of his breach with Darwin over certain elements of the evolution of humankind, but it is more consistent with the facts that Wallace's thought processes had been moving in this direction long before he even came to recognize the principle of natural selection.
