On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

release date: Jul 15, 2022
On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life
On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin - published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin that is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Darwin''s book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. The book presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had collected on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals. The political and theological implications were intensely debated, but transmutation was not accepted by the scientific mainstream.

The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (Evolutionary Theory)

release date: May 07, 2021
The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (Evolutionary Theory)
The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals is Charles Darwin''s major work of evolutionary theory. The book concerns the biological aspects of emotional life, and Darwin explores the animal origins of such human characteristics as the lifting of the eyebrows in moments of surprise and the mental confusion which typically accompanies blushing. Darwin''s biological approach links emotions to their origins in animal behavior, and allows cultural factors only an auxiliary role in the shaping of expression. This biological emphasis leads to a concentration on six emotional states: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust.It also leads to an appreciation of the universal nature of expression, with its implication of a single origin for the entire human species; and Darwin points to the importance of emotional communication with children in their psychological development.

The cyclic, intense changes in its current circumstance assisted the fish with adjusting - turning into a genuine maze fish. A maze fish has the interesting capacity to inhale oxygen straightforwardly from the air and furthermore take in oxygen from its gills. Thus, bettas and other maze fish can make due for brief timeframes out of water and if necessary, can breathe noticeable all around them (if they stay clammy.) This likewise clarifies why a betta can support itself in stale, oxygen-insufficient water. Despite the fact that bettas can endure little spaces and helpless water quality, they do best in little aquariums (no less than two gallons) with ordinary water changes. The favored water temperature for a betta is 76-82 degrees F.

The Descent of Man

The Descent of Man
Applying his controversial theory of evolution to the origins of the human species, Charles Darwin''s The Descent of Man was the culmination of his life''s work. This Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction by James Moore and Adrian Desmond. In The Origin of Species, Charles Darwin refused to discuss human evolution, believing the subject too ''surrounded with prejudices''. He had been reworking his notes since the 1830s, but only with trepidation did he finally publish The Descent of Man in 1871. The book notoriously put apes in our family tree and made the races one family, diversified by ''sexual selection'' - Darwin''s provocative theory that female choice among competing males leads to diverging racial characteristics. Named by Sigmund Freud as ''one of the ten most significant books'' ever written, Darwin''s Descent of Man continues to shape the way we think about what it is that makes us uniquely human. In their introduction, James Moore and Adrian Desmond, acclaimed biographers of Charles Darwin, call for a radical re-assessment of the book, arguing that its core ideas on race were fired by Darwin''s hatred of slavery. The text is the second and definitive edition and this volume also contains suggestions for further reading, a chronology and biographical sketches of prominent individuals mentioned. Charles Darwin (1809-82), a Victorian scientist and naturalist, has become one of the most famous figures of science to date. The advent of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection in 1859 challenged and contradicted all contemporary biological and religious beliefs. If you enjoyed The Descent of Man, you might like Darwin''s On the Origin of Species, also available in Penguin Classics.

Darwin and Women

Darwin and Women
Darwin and Women focusses on Darwin''s correspondence with women and on the lives of the women he knew and wrote to. It includes a large number of hitherto unpublished letters between members of Darwin''s family and their friends that throw light on the lives of the women of his circle and their relationships, social and professional, with Darwin. The letters included are by turns entertaining, intriguing, and challenging, and are organised into thematic chapters, including botany and zoology as well as marriage and servants, that set them in an accessible narrative context. Darwin''s famous remarks on women''s intelligence in Descent of Man provide a recurring motif, and are discussed in the foreword by Gillian Beer, and in the introduction. The immediacy and variety of these texts make this an entertaining read which will suggest avenues for further research to students.

The Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin

The Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin
When the Beagle sailed out of Devonport on 27 December 1831, Charles Darwin was twenty-two and setting off on the voyage of a lifetime. It was to last five years and transform him from an amiable and somewhat aimless young man into a scientific celebrity. Even more vitally, it was to set in motion the intellectual currents that culminated in the arrival of The Origin of Species in Victorian drawing-rooms in 1859. His journal is vivid and immediate, showing us a naturalist making patient observations, above all in geology. As well as a profusion of natural history detail, it records many other things that caught Darwin’s eye, from civil war in Argentina to the new colonial settlements of Australia.

On the Origin of Species (Annotated) First Edition

On the Origin of Species (Annotated) First Edition
This is the first edition of Charles Darwin''s On the Origin of Species, published on November 24, 1859 in London by John Murray. It is a seminal work in scientific literature and a landmark work in evolutionary biology. It introduced the theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. The starting chapters introduce the theory of natural selection, explaining why certain species thrive, while others decrease in number, how the members of nature are in competition with each other and why organisms tend to vary and change with time. Much of this work is based on experiments and observations seen within domestic animals and plants. The later chapters defend the theory of natural selection against apparent inconsistencies, why geological records are incomplete, why we find species so widespread and how sterility can be inherited when the organisation is unable to reproduce and more. The book is approachable for any audience.
