On The Origin of Species


On The Origin of Species is quite simply one of the most important and influential books ever written; further, it is one of the very few groundbreaking works of science that is truly readable.

''Amazingly, more than 150 years after the publication of On The Origin of Species, Darwin's seminal work on the theory of evolution remains the authoritative tract on the subject.''

Library Journal

''It is clear that On The Origin of Species is one of the most important contributions ever made to philosophic science; and it is at least behooving on scientists, in the light of the accumulation of evidence which the author has summoned in support of his theory, to reconsider the grounds on which their present doctrine of the origin of species is based.''

 New York Times

CHARLES DARWIN (1809-1882) was the first evolutionary biologist, best known for his controversial and trailblazing The Origin of Species, introducing the groundbreaking concept of natural selection, marking a new epoch in the scientific world.
