About the Author

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 mostrar mais 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. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Nesta obra as ideias gerais da Teoria da Evolução das Espécies sofreram, aos poucos, alterações e aperfeiçoamentos. Todavia, as teses do evolucionismo subsistem até hoje, e o nome da Darwin ficou ligado a uma das mais notáveis concepções do espírito humano. Na base da teoria evolucionista de Darwin está a luta pela vida. Somente os mais fortes e os mais aptos conseguem sobreviver, e a própria natureza se incumbe de proceder a essa seleção natural.
