Table of contents

After its publication, the book not only sent an unmatched impact to Biology but also to economy and social science. Today, the scientific community and much of the general public have accepted evolution as a fact. Darwinian evolutionism is one of important intellectual strands that run through many works of later economists. The elements such as natural selection, the struggle for existence, and the survival of the fittest in Darwinism tells us that individuals have little or no control over the forces of change.

This book is for the readers who are interested in analyses of an economic system from an evolution approach and the deepest thoughts of human evolution process by Charles Darwin, one of the greatest thinkers on the planet. It is also for the readers who are interested in studying the background that Darwin wrote his greatest work On the Origin of Species.

First editions of Darwin’s Origin of Species

Continue shopping Checkout Continue shopping. What a shame Darwin did not live to see the discovery of DNA. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. Richard Leakey enhances and illustrates Darwin's classic work explaining key ideas with practical examples. A particularly useful aspect of this work is setting Darwin's observations and theories in the context of subsequent discoveries, of people such as Mendel, and also with our growing knowledge of the function of DNA that has proven many of Darwin's ideas correct.

I would recommend this easy to read work to anyone interested in biology and to students studying this subject. One person found this helpful.


This is a new printing of the original work by Charles Darwin. It is the book that caused so much furore amongst the people of the early 19th century and lead to outrage in society at the truly revolutionary idea of how species evolve.

By Charles Darwin, M.A.,

It is written in the style of the period, and as such is not the easiest read, but it is worth delving into the mind of a true pioneer of modern science. Much of the book was written following Darwin's exploratory voyages in the South Seas. He observed the various physical differences between animals that he saw on the different islands and this lead him to postulate the idea that the variations might come about because creatures lived in separate environments. He then suggested that the local conditions might lead to the prevalence of certain characteristics. The book contains many descriptions of the variations of the anaimals that he observed and his thoughts on what he saw.

People that have not read this book seem to tend to believe that it contains certain anti-religious statements; in fact, this is far from the truth. However, don't take my word for it; get the book and read it for yourself. Although reading and understanding was tough at times, it was worth the struggle. It is shame that the diagram mentioned several times in the book was not included. It made one chapter almost unnecessary to read. By combining the two books into one volume the publisher gives the reader the chance to see Darwin in two different stages of his life. The Voyage of the Beagle shows us the young Darwin, energetic and enthusiastic with a brilliant mind and a keen observer of everything he sees.

This is a wonderful book and Darwin gives a facinating look at South America and Australia as it was years ago. If you have ever been bored by some friend showing you his holiday snaps as he drones on about every detail of his holiday you might be put off buying a book describing a five year sea voyage but don't be fooled, this is Indiana Jones meets the theory of evolution. In the Origin of Species we have a much older but just as brilliant Darwin describing his theory of evolution by natural selection.

He takes us through the basic idea and then uses it to explain why the natural world is the way we see it. The fundamental idea is brilliant in its simplicity and in its power to explain. What is all the more amazing is at the time Darwin was writing there was no concept of genetics and the discovery of DNA was years away. Inevitably this book may appear a bit dry compared to the high adventure of The Voyage of the Beagle but the reader is more than compensated by the knowledge that they are reading one of the most important books every written in the history of mankind.

A classic of course. From an academic perspective, it is interesting to read this and look at the flaws caused by the limited knowledge at the time of writing. Without knowledge of DNA or genetics in general, there is a lot of guesswork here. But still this is a great book, and a great starting point for someone wanting to learn more about the world of evolution. Over the years I have heard bits and bobs of this book. Specifically since year In biology we talk about Darwin and his theory but the short stories that we are told are not very detailed.

I have wanted to buy this book for over 5 years now! Its not science fiction, but it certainly is very detailed and entertaining. I loved reading every page of it. If you are a science student, this book is a very good buy and read! You will be able to link a lot of theory related questions in your exams to bits of this book. Very good purchace.
