Since the publication of Life and Letters, theories about the causes of Charles Darwin's illness have proliferated. Many have studied Darwin's illness because of their admiration for his work and their professional interest in the nature of illness. Their theories of his illness have varied widely, reflecting different degrees of knowledge about Darwin, different periods of medical thought and knowledge, and different interests, predilections, and points of reference for viewing and studying illness. These theories are summarized and assessed.
