    Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion and a life-long committed Darwinist, abridges and reads this special audio version of Charles Darwin's famous book. A literally world-changing book, Darwin put forward the anti-religious and scientific idea that humans in fact evolved over millions of generations from animals, starting with fish, all the way up through the ranks to apes, then to our current form.

    The Origin of Species sold out on the first day of its publication in 1859. It is the major book of the 19th century and one of the most readable and accessible of the great revolutionary works of the scientific imagination. Though, in fact, little read, most people know what it says—at least they think they do. The Origin of Species was the first mature and persuasive work to explain how species change through the process of natural selection. Upon its publication, the book began to transform attitudes about society and religion.

    Perhaps the most influential science book ever written, On the Origin of Species has continued to fascinate for more than a century after its initial publication. Its controversial theory that populations evolve and adapt through a process known as natural selection led to heated scientific, philosophical, and religious debate, revolutionizing every discipline in its wake. With its clear, concise, and surprisingly enjoyable prose, On the Origin of Species is both captivating and edifying.

    The Voyage of the Beagle - or, to give it its full title, Journal of researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries visited during the Voyage round the World of H.M.S. Beagle under command of Captain FitzRoy, R.N. - is much more than merely an account of Darwin's scientific observations in his 1831 - 36 travels across the globe: it is fine travel writing in its own right.

    First published in the 19th century, On the Origin of Species is one of the most important and controversial books ever written on human origins. Darwin's work is the cornerstone of the theory of evolution and is as important today as it was when it was released nearly 160 years ago.

However, because of the immense impact of his best known theory, most know only of his work through reviews and historical reports.

    One of the most famous and influential books of its (or any) time, The Origin of Species is, surprisingly, little read. True enough, most people know what it says, or think they do, at any rate. The first comprehensive statement of the theory of natural selection, it does, indeed, provide the basic argument and demonstration of what we think of as Darwinism.

    In 1831, the HMS Beagle took sail. Onboard was a young Charles Darwin. He would set out on an adventure that would lead him to question everything about man's place in the world. The Voyage of the Beagle is the journal Darwin kept of his observations of the extraordinary and natural wonders he encountered, from volcanoes to the coral reefs of Australia. It would be these natural wonders that would lead to him questioning how the different species of the world came to be and eventually to his radical theories.

    Charles Darwin was just 22 when he went on his first voyage around the world in 1831. Darwin's father at first refused to allow his young son to go on the voyage. Fortunately, his father relented, and Darwin's journal is now considered by many to be the greatest scientific travel narrative ever written.

    This scientific writing, which was considered to be the groundwork of evolutionary biology, presented the theory that species developed over a line of originations through a method of natural selection. It imparted evidence that the variety of life resulted from a common descent via a branching model of evolution.

    This work, unsurprisingly, offers invaluable insights into the life and times of Charles Darwin, his personality and the formative influences that made him what he was, for here we have his own words and ‘voice’ at the close of a prodigiously productive career. He tells of his childhood, his student days at Edinburgh and Cambridge, his love of beetles, shooting and geology and of his grandfather, Josiah Wedgwood. He talks at some length about his meetings with the great scientific men of the age, his attitudes to his critics, to religion and of his theories of evolution.

    C'est en étudiant la faune et la flore d'Amérique du Sud, lors de son voyage à bord du Beagle (de 1831 à 1836) que Charles Darwin va avoir l'intuition de la sélection naturelle, point central de sa théorie future de l'évolution des espèces. Publié en 1859, "L'origine des espèces" est un livre fondamental de la science moderne. À l'origine des théories de l'évolution, ce texte va révolutionner la compréhension du monde et fonder les bases de la biologie moderne, de la génétique, de l'éthologie et de l'écologie.

    Charles Darwin was appointed naturalist aboard the H.M.S. Beagle, which left England in 1831 to map the coast of South America and then circumnavigate the globe. As Darwin explored, he came to dispute the idea that catastrophic upheaval created mountains and shaped the earth - and if geological change came slowly, could not living species also evolve the same way?

    Im Alter von 22 Jahren besteigt im Jahre 1831 Charles Darwin, ein bis dahin eher orientierungsloser Mann mit abgebrochenem Medizin- und abgeschlossenem Theologiestudium, das Schiff "Beagle", um in zwei Jahren die Welt zu umsegeln. Die Besatzung der "Beagle", ein königliches Forschungs- und Vermessungsschiff, hat die Aufgabe die südamerikanische Küste zu karthografieren.

    Le 24 novembre 1859 paraît à Londres "L'Origine des espèces par le moyen de la sélection naturelle, ou la préservation des races favorisées dans la lutte pour la vie". L'auteur du livre, Charles Darwin (1809-1882), est un naturaliste de cinquante ans qu'un voyage autour du monde particulièrement riche en découvertes et l'œuvre originale édifiée à sa suite ont déjà fait connaître largement en Angleterre et en Europe continentale. C'est ce livre toutefois qui fera de son auteur le plus célèbre penseur de l'histoire naturelle qu'ait connu le monde depuis Buffon, et le principal bâtisseur - après Lamarck - , du transformisme moderne ou théorie de l'évolution des espèces vivantes.
