Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895) was a English scientist and humanist.
Following the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859), he became known as "Darwin's bulldog", and for many years was the most prominent and popular champion of evolution. In 1869, he coined the word "agnostic" to express his own religious attitude.
He wrote Man's Place in Nature (1863), textbooks on physiology, and innumerable scientific papers.
His later books, such as Lay Sermons (1870), Science and Culture (1881), and Evolution and Ernies were expositions of scientific humanism. His grandsons include Aldous, Andrew, and Julian Huxley.
