9780736622325: The Origin Of Species

It was sold out on its first day of publication in 1859. It is the major book of the last century and remains the most readable and accessible of all the great revolutionary works of the scientific imagination. It beguiled then and still does today.

Darwin's aim was to show the probability that every species is a development from previous species, which implied that man evolved from earlier and different forms of life. Darwin concluded that there exists a "natural selection" of favorable variations, which in the course of years succeeds in producing a variety of living things through this process of evolution.

Darwin, like Freud after him, transformed the way people thought about God, the world around them, other people and themselves.

From the Back Cover:

Perhaps the most readable and accessible of the great works of the scientific imagination, The Origin of Species sold out on the day it was published in 1859. Theologians quickly labeled Charles Darwin the most dangerous man in England, and, as the Saturday Review noted, the uproar over the book quickly 'passed beyond the bounds of the study and lecture-room into the drawing-room and the public street.' Yet after reading it, Darwin's friend and colleague T.H. Huxley had a different reaction: 'How extremely stupid not to have thought of that.'
