Darwin's Origin of species : a biography by E. J Browne( Book )

49 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin's foremost biographer, historian Janet Browne, delivers an accessible introduction to the book that permanently altered our understanding of what it is to be human. A sensation on its publication in 1859, The Origin of Species profoundly shocked Victorian readers by calling into question the belief in a Creator with its description of evolution through natural selection. And Darwin's seminal work is nearly as controversial today. In this study, Browne delves into the long genesis of Darwin's theories, from his readings as a university student and his five-year voyage on the Beagle, to his debates with contemporaries and experiments in his garden. She explores the shock to Darwin when he read of a competing scientist's similar discoveries, and the wide and immediate impact of Darwin's theories on the world, showing why The Origin of Species can fairly claim to be the greatest science book ever published.--From publisher description

Darwin's brave new world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin's Brave New World is the story of how four young voyagers to the southern hemisphere, Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace revolutionised science and gave birth to an extraordinary theory about the evolution of life on earth. Darwin's voyage to the southern hemisphere in the 1830s changed him from a directionless rich kid bound for a career in the Church, into one of the most incendiary thinkers of our age. This 5-year voyage stunned and stimulated the young Darwin; the biodiversity, the exoticism, even the brutality, of the southern hemisphere, was in staggering comparison to the England he had just left 7F 13 and it laid the foundations of his very 'dangerous idea': evolution by means of natural selection. Featuring a cast of Australian and Canadian actors and commentators such as controversial author and Oxford academic, Richard Dawkins, the Canadian scientist and broadcaster, David Suzuki and Australian scholar and author, Iain McCalman, from the University of Sydney, this brilliant drama-documentary tells the story of Charles Darwin's struggle to produce one of the greatest scientific theories of our age and the roles played in it by Hooker, Huxley and Wallace - Darwin's fellow voyagers to the southern hemisphere. It is a story of a group of young men who had a new and radical vision of the world and were possessed of the courage to pursue it

The Beagle letters by Charles Darwin( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Darwin's voyage on HMS Beagle is a gripping adventure story, and a turning point in the making of the modern world. Brought together here in chronological order, the letters he wrote and received during his trip provide a first-hand account of a voyage of discovery that was as much personal as intellectual. We follow Darwin's adventures as he prepares for his travels, lands on his first tropical island, watches an earthquake level a city, and learns how to catch ostriches from a running horse. We witness slavery, political revolution, and epidemic disease, and share the otherworldly experience of landing on the Galapagos Islands and collecting specimens. His letters are counterpoised by replies from family and friends that record a comfortable, intimate world back in England. Original watercolours by the ship's artist, Conrad Martens, vividly bring to life Darwin's descriptions of his travels."--Jacket

These include such issues as how and when emotions became the province of science and the mind; the emotional nature of the relationship between medical professionals and their patients; the circumstances in which empathy and compassion were a desirable aspect of the medical encounter; and the extent to which gender might influence the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of pathological emotional conditions. In addressing such themes, this volume also raises issues about the management of emotions in the therapeutic encounter, the ethics of emotion in medical research and the relationship between 'psyche' and 'soma' in Western medical history."--Jacket
