The origin of species by Charles Darwin( )
32 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 2,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. Arguing for a material, not divine, origin of species, he showed that new species are achieved by 'natural selection'. Development, diversification, decay, extinction and absence of plan are all inherent to his theories. Darwin read prodigiously across many fields; he reflected on his experiences as a traveller, he experimented. His profoundly influential concept of 'natural selection' condenses materials from past and present, from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. The Origin communicates the enthusiasm of original thinking in an open, descriptive style, and Darwin's emphasis on the value of diversity speaks more strongly now than ever

Virginia Woolf : the common ground : essays by Gillian Beer by Gillian Beer( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Polish and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eminent feminist critic Gillian Beer's work on Woolf, George Eliot, and Victorian scientific discourse is well known and admired. In Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground, Beer's essays on Woolf are brought together for the first time in a single volume. Through her close investigative textual readings, she demonstrates how Woolf's conceptualizations of history and narrative are intimately bound up with her ways of thinking about women, writing, and social and sexual relations. This is demonstrated through precise, detailed configurations, setting Woolf alongside texts both contemporary and distant, scientific and literary, with the effect that Woolf's writing is illuminated in entirely new and unexpected contexts. Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground is a compelling collection for students, scholars, and Woolf devotees alike
Open fields : science in cultural encounter by Gillian Beer( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science always raises more questions than it can contain. These challenging essays explore how ideas are transformed as they come under the stress of unforeseen readers. Using a wealth of material from diverse nineteenth- and twentieth-century writing, Gillian Beer tracks encounters between science, literature, and other forms of emotional experience. Her analysis discloses issues of chance, gender, nation, and desire. A substantial group of essays centres on Darwin and the incentives of his thinking, from language theory to his encounters with Fuegians. Other essays include Hardy, Helmholtz, Hopkins, Clerk Maxwell, and Woolf. The collection throws a different light on Victorian experience and the rise of modernism, and engages with current controversies about the place of science in culture
