Obra clave en la historia del pensamiento y la ciencia contemporánea, fue quizá el gran revulsivo que por primera vez puso realmente al hombre frente a sus orígenes, apuntando las primeras pruebas materiales de la evolución. La presente edición recoge el texto de la primera traducción española, autorizada en su día por Darwin, versión íntegra de un libro de fascinante lectura y permanente actualidad.

About the author (1985)

Charles Robert Darwin, born in 1809, was an English naturalist who founded the theory of Darwinism, the belief in evolution as determined by natural selection. Although Darwin studied medicine at Edinburgh University, and then studied at Cambridge University to become a minister, he had been interested in natural history all his life. His grandfather, Erasmus Darwin, was a noted English poet, physician, and botanist who was interested in evolutionary development. Darwin's works have had an incalculable effect on all aspects of the modern thought. Darwin's most famous and influential work, On the Origin of Species, provoked immediate controversy. Darwin's other books include Zoology of the Voyage of the Beagle, The Variation of Animals and Plants Under Domestication, The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex. Charles Darwin died in 1882.
