"The Origin of Species" outlines Charles Darwin's theory that proposed that species had not been independently brought into being by a Creator, but had arisen from a single common ancestor and had evolved and differentiated over time through the process of natural selection. Received with both enthusiasm and controversy on its publication, it triggered a seismic shift in the understanding of humanity's place in the natural world, and posed questions that have occupied evolutionary biology for nearly a century and a half. It is not only a brilliant work of science but also a clear, vivid, sometimes even moving piece of popular writing that reflects both Darwin's genius and his boundless enthusiasm for the natural world.
