Man's place in nature by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

235 editions published between 1863 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas H. Huxley was one of the first supporters of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and he did more than any other writer to advance its acceptance among scientists and nonscientists alike. His most famous book, Man's Place in Nature, published only five years after Darwin's The Origin of Species, offers a compelling review of primate and human paleontology, and is the first attempt to apply Darwin's theory to human beings. As compelling a piece of analysis now as it was 140 years ago, Man's Place in Nature is a must for every science lover's library."--Jacket

Method and results. Essays by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

90 editions published between 1893 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as 'Darwin's Bulldog', the biologist Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) was a tireless supporter of the evolutionary theories of his friend Charles Darwin. Huxley also made his own significant scientific contributions, and he was influential in the development of science education despite having had only two years of formal schooling. He established his scientific reputation through experiments on aquatic life carried out during a voyage to Australia while working as an assistant surgeon in the Royal Navy; ultimately he became President of the Royal Society (1883-5). Throughout his life Huxley struggled with issues of faith, and he coined the term 'agnostic' to describe his beliefs. This nine-volume collection of Huxley's essays, which he edited and published in 1893-4, demonstrates the wide range of his intellectual interests. Volume 1 begins with a brief autobiography, and examines the development and progress of scientific practice and knowledge

Darwiniana; essays by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

95 editions published between 1893 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have entitled this volume "Darwiniana" because the pieces republished in it either treat of the ancient doctrine of evolution, rehabilitated and placed upon a sound scientific foundation, since and in consequence of, the publication of the "Origin of Species;" or they attempt to meet the more weighty of the unsparing criticisms with which that great work was visited for several years after its appearance; or they record the impression left by the personality of Mr. Darwin on one who had the privilege and the happiness of enjoying his friendship for some thirty years; or they endeavour to sum up his work and indicate its enduring influence on the course of scientific thought"--Preface.

Introduction to the theory of evolution
Evidence as to man's place in nature by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

109 editions published between 1863 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1863, the biologist and educator Thomas Henry Huxley published Evidence as to Man's Place in Nature, a compilation of his public lectures on Darwin's theory of evolution - specifically the controversial idea of the ape ancestry of humans. An energetic supporter of Darwin, Huxley's argues that in order to understand the universe, everyone must know their place in the natural world. The book is divided into three parts, each written with the aim of persuading lay audiences. The first covers earlier human beliefs about exotic animals, especially 'man-like' apes. In Part 2, Huxley suggests that every animal on Earth is related in that all go through developmental stages from an egg, whether the animal is 'a silkworm or a school-boy'. Part 3 involves a discussion of recently discovered Neanderthal bones and compares prehistoric craniums to modern human skulls

On the origin of species; or, The causes of the phenomena of organic nature by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

62 editions published between 1863 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prefixed to the English edition, is the following note from Professor Huxley: "Mr. J. Aldous Mays, who is taking shorthand notes of my 'Lectures to Working Men,' has asked me to allow him, on his own account, to print those notes for the use of my audience. I willingly accede to this request, on the understanding that a notice is prefixed to the effect that I have no leisure to revise the Lectures, or to make alterations in them, beyond the correction of any important error in a matter of fact." The reader will not regret that the Lectures appear in this form. Taken from the lips of the distinguished naturalist, as he addressed an audience of Working Men, they have a clearness, a directness, and a simplicity which belonged to the circumstances of their delivery. In this respect, the following Lectures are incomparable. Dealing with the most abstruse and fundamental questions of mind and organization, these subjects are nevertheless presented in so lucid and attractive a manner as to impress vividly the commonest imagination"--Preface.

Lessons in elementary physiology by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

149 editions published between 1866 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In approaching the revision of 'Huxley's Physiology, ' my feelings have been similar to those of an architect to whom is entrusted the restoration of a historic building designed by a master hand. Written by Huxley, the book was revised, and in fact almost rewritten, by Foster. The former was as great a writer as any scientist of his time, the latter may almost be said to have created English Physiology. To 'restore' the work of these men from the dilapidations made by two decades of scientific progress is the task now entrusted to me. The sense of responsibility with which I approach it is, if possible, heightened by the affection which I have for the memory of Foster, who was my master. I have faithfully left untouched any portion of the fabric in which there was not an actual flaw; but where the structure needed repair, it seemed to me due not only to the readers of the book but to the memory of the author, that the repair should be thorough, substantial, and simple. Such have been the principles on which I have tried to carry out my work"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)
Evolution & ethics : T.H. Huxley's "Evolution and ethics" with new essays on its Victorian and sociobiological context by Thomas Henry Huxley( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T. H. Huxley (1825-1895) was not only an active protagonist in the religious and scientific upheaval that followed the publication of Darwin's theory of evolution but also a harbinger of the sociobiological debates about the implications of evolution that are now going on. His seminal lecture Evolution and Ethics, reprinted here with its introductory Prolegomena, argues that the human psyche is at war with itself, that humans are alienated in a cosmos that has no special reference to their needs, and that moral societies are of necessity in conflict with the natural conditions of their existence. Seen in the light of current understanding of the mechanisms of evolution, these claims remain as controversial today as they were when Huxley proposed them. In this volume George Williams, one of the best-known evolutionary biologists of our time, asserts that recent biological ideas and data justify a more extreme condemnation of the "cosmic process" than Huxley advocated and more extreme denial that the forces that got us here are capable of maintaining a viable world. James Paradis, an expert in Victorian studies, has written an introduction that sets the celebrated lecture in the context of cultural history, revealing it to be an impressive synthesis of Victorian thinking, as well as a challenge to eighteenth-century assumptions about the harmony of of nature. With Huxley's lecture as a focal point, the three parts of this book unite philosophy and science in a shared quest that recalls their common origins as systems of knowledge.Originally published in 1989.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
