Review

The Origins of Species was written for non-specialist readers which led to its widespread interest upon publication, making science accessible for those that weren’t involved in the field. As Darwin was an eminent scientist himself, his findings were taken seriously and the evidence he presented led to meaningful scientific, philosophical, and religious discussions. Within two decades of initial publication, the book led to widespread scientific agreement that evolution, with a branching pattern of common descent, had occurred, speaking volumes to the influence and talents of Darwin himself.

Overview

Published in 1859, this work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. The Origin of Species introduces the scientific theory that different populations evolve over the course of multiple generations through a process of natural selection. Darwin presents a body of evidence that argues that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Included in the book is evidence he had gathered on his Beagle expedition in the 1830's and his subsequent findings through experimentation, research, and correspondence.

Various evolutionary ideas had been published prior to The Origin of Species to help explain new findings in biology. However, while science was considered to be a part of natural theology in the first half of the nineteenth century, the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the church. The political and theological implications of humans being tied to animals, rather than being completely unique, were intensely debated.
