The Origin of Species : and, The Voyage of the Beagle Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


This title is presented with an introduction by Darwin's great-great-granddaughter, Ruth Padel.

When the eminent naturalist Charles Darwin returned from South America on board the H.M.S Beagle in 1836, he brought with him the notes and evidence which would form the basis of his landmark theory of evolution of species by a process of natural selection.

This theory, published as "The Origin of Species" in 1859, is the basis of modern biology and the concept of biodiversity.

It also sparked a fierce scientific, religious and philosophical debate which still continues today.

Review by

The Origin of Species:This groundbreaking 150 years old book is simply one of the most important book ever written. Changed the science and the way mankind looks and analyse the world so much it was impossible to even imagine before. Well written, easy to understand and stunning that it explains clearly many things which dumbhead creationists debating even today. A must read to everyone who wants to understand the basics of biology and wants to call himself/herself an open-minded and learned person
