It had been believed for a long time that all living things on earth came in individually. Charles Darwin, naturalist and geologist, came up with the evolutionary theory, which proved that all living beings have survived only because of evolution. He argued that natural selection has helped us survive through the changing environments throughout history. The book changed the world?s understanding of their environment and history, and has even challenged the strong belief in divine creation. Darwin`s book is essential for and has influenced scholars in fields of philosophy, theology and history. Printed Pages: 0. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 84072

Buchbeschreibung Penguin UK Sep 2009, 2009. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Charles Darwin's seminal formulation of the theory of Evolution, On the Origin of Species continues to be as controversial today as when it was first published. Written for a general readership, On the Origin of Species sold out on the day of its publication and has remained in print ever since. Instantly and persistently controversial, the concept of natural selection transformed scientific analysis about all life on Earth. Before the Origin of Species, accepted thinking held that life was the static and perfect creation of God. By a single, systematic argument Darwin called this view into question. His ideas have affected public perception of everything from religion to economics. William Bynum's introduction discusses Darwin's life, the publication and reception of the themes of On the Origin of Species, and the subsequent development of its major themes. The new edition also includes brief biographies of some of the most important scientific thinkers leading up to and surrounding the Origin of Species, suggested further reading, notes and a chronology. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Buchbeschreibung Oxford University Press Nov 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - 'can we doubt . that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind ' In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. The present edition provides a detailed and accessible discussion of his theories and adds an account of the immediate responses to the book on publication. The resistances as well as the enthusiasms of the first readers cast light on recent controversies, particularly concerning questions of design and descent.
