Overview

Still considered one of the most influential works of science, Darwin's On the Origin of Species forever changed the way we look at ourselves in relation to other living beings.

Drawn largely from studies Darwin made on his voyage on the HMS Beagle, Origin presents a large body of evidence that human beings were not created at once, by the hands of a single divine being, but evolved from past species through natural selection, adapting over thousands and thousands of years. What exploded into controversy at the time of its publication is now the most widely accepted scientific explanation for man’s origin.

This surprisingly personal collection of his various experiments, observations, and findings is a must-read for curious minds of every kind.

Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, this Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.
