When Charles Darwin returned from his travels aboard the H.M.S. Beagle in 1836, he was welcomed by the scientific community and soon published his journals on the voyage. But some of his observations had given rise to a radical theory that Darwin worked on in secret for two more decades. When this revolutionary work was published in 1859, it is said to have sold out in one day. Publication has continued uninterrupted ever since, as has the controversy it sparked between science and theology.

As a lover of science and education in general I was thoroughly surprised and delighted to find that Original of Species was a brilliant work and easy read. Humankind often fails to remember how we advanced and this book does a wonderful job of that. Читать весь отзыв

Об авторе (2010)

Charles Robert Darwin, born in 1809, was an English naturalist who founded the theory of Darwinism, the belief in evolution as determined by natural selection. Although Darwin studied medicine at Edinburgh University, and then studied at Cambridge University to become a minister, he had been interested in natural history all his life. His grandfather, Erasmus Darwin, was a noted English poet, physician, and botanist who was interested in evolutionary development. Darwin's works have had an incalculable effect on all aspects of the modern thought. Darwin's most famous and influential work, On the Origin of Species, provoked immediate controversy. Darwin's other books include Zoology of the Voyage of the Beagle, The Variation of Animals and Plants Under Domestication, The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex. Charles Darwin died in 1882.
