520 8  Friedrich Max Müller was one of the most well-known 
       academics in Victorian Britain. His popular writings 
       enjoyed a wide readership and acclaim; his public lectures
       were sell-out events; he was a prominent figure in the 
       popularisation of evolutionary thinking before Darwin; and
       his differences with Darwin on the origin of language 
       represent an important moment in Victorian intellectual 
       life. Max Müller's theories regarding the origins and 
       development of language and of religion served to create a
       public fascination with the past, with legend and with 
       myth. He is in many ways the founding father of the field 
       of religious studies - or the 'science of religion, ' as 
       he called it - in Great Britain. His public role in the 
       contexts of imperialism and British understanding of 
       Oriental and colonial cultures, and as an intermediary in 
       Anglo-Indian cultural relations, brought him notoriety. 
       Good-looking, witty and gifted, with a German background 
       and intellectual training, Max Müller was, for many 
       outside academe, the embodiment of the Professor and a 
       forerunner of today's media-savvy academic. This volume 
       assesses Max Müller's position in the evolving nineteenth-
       century intellectual landscape. It applies the latest 
       scholarship to Max Muller's theories of evolution in 
       relation to the subjects of comparative religion, language,
       myth, metaphor and psychology. It evaluates his religious 
       position and the wider impact of this in literature, 
       intellectual life, colonialism, and politics
