In 1859, Charles Darwin outlined his theory of evolution in The Origin of Species. Darwin's argument that species had been evolving and differentiating over time under the influence of natural selection revolutionized scientific thought; shook the very foundations of existing philosophical and religious thought; and remains controversial even today. Delightfully readable, this epochal work is the key to understand the evolution of mankind.

Charles Robert Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, England, in 1809. He was the grandson of renowned physician Erasmus Darwin. Darwin was interested in natural history from an early age, studying marine invertebrates closely at Edinburgh University. He later joined Cambridge University where he became an ardent student of John Henslow, a professor of Botany, and fully immersed himself in natural sciences. His initial records of captured insects and beetles were published in British Entomology in 1829. With Henslow’s support, Darwin secured the position of naturalist on H.M.S Beagle and embarked on his momentous voyage to the Southern Hemisphere in 1831. The next five years were spent in collecting material on natural history, understanding various life forms closely and making notes in his journal. On his return to London in 1836, Darwin conducted his research and wrote prolifically, but The Origin of Species was published much later, in 1859. However, even then, it took almost a decade for his theory to be accepted with among the scientific community. In the years to come, the text had indeed led to ‘the gradual illumination of men’s minds, which follows from the advance of science’, as Darwin wrote in a letter to physician E.B. Aveling. Darwin authored several other works including The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871) and Recollections of My Mind and Character (1887). Darwin’s Diary of the Voyage of the H.M.S. Beagle was published posthumously in 1933. He died of heart failure in 1882 and is buried in Westminster Abbey. Darwin Day is annually celebrated on February 12 to commemorate his birth anniversary.
