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

42 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,660 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

The Beagle letters by Charles Darwin( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 708 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

Medicine, emotion and disease, 1700-1950 by Fay Bound Alberti( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Cultures of natural history by David Allen( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This copiously illustrated volume is the first systematic general work to do justice to the fruits of recent scholarship in the history of natural history. Public interest in this lively field has been stimulated by environmental concerns and through links with the histories of art, collecting and gardening. The centrality of the development of natural history for other branches of history - medical, colonial, gender, economic, ecological - is increasingly recognized. Twenty-four specially commissioned essays cover the period from the sixteenth century, when the first institutions of natural history were created, to its late nineteenth-century transformation by practitioners of the new biological sciences. An introduction discusses novel approaches that have made this a major focus for research in cultural history. The essays, which include suggestions for further reading, offer a coherent and accessible overview of a fascinating subject. An epilogue highlights the relevance of this wide-ranging survey for current debates on museum practice, the display of ecological diversity and concerns about the environment
