The Origin of Species (PREMIUM PAPERBACK, PENGUIN INDIA)

Charles Darwin
Select Preferred Format

How was the universe created? Who made us? What makes us so distinct from other creatures on this Earth? Eminent naturalist Charles Darwin attempted to answer these questions in the early 19th century.

In 1831, Charles Darwin left Plymouth Harbor aboard the HMS Beagle. During the next five years, he conducted research on plants and animals from around the world, collecting key evidence and making detailed notes. Through his studies he discovered one of the greatest biological phenomenon that changed the course of mankind-evolution.
Twenty eight years later, he finally published his findings in The Origin of Species, a revolutionary work of scientific literature that laid down the foundations for evolutionary biology. In the book Darwin argues that all species evolve through a process of ‘natural selection’, adapting to their changing environment to ensure survival; this leads to the birth of new species and the transformation of the old.

Lucid, cerebral, and utterly riveting, The Origin of Species is amongst the greatest works of scientific imagination.

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin, a Victorian scientist and naturalist, has become one of the most famous figures of science to date. Born in 1809 to an upper-middle-class medical family, he was destined for a career in either medicine or the Anglican Church. However, he never completed his medical education and his future changed entirely in 1831 when he joined HMS Beagle as a self-financing, independent naturalist. On returning to England in 1836 he began to write up his theories and observations which culminated in a series of books, most famously On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection in 1859, where he challenged and contradicted contemporary biological and religious beliefs with two decades worth of scientific investigation and theory. Darwin's theory of natural selection is now the most widely accepted scientific model of how species evolve. He died in 1882 and was buried in Westminster Abbey.
