The Origin of Species by...Natural Selection
Written for the general public of the 1850s, this is a rigorously documented but highly readable account of the scientific theory that now lies at the root of present day attitudes to the universe. Challenging notions such as the fixity of species with the idea of natural selection, and setting forth the results of pioneering work on the ecology of animals and plants, it made a lasting contribution to philosophical and scientific thought.
