Biography of Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin ( PORTRAIT - 49K ) was born on 12 February, 1809 in Shrewsbury, England. His father, Robert Darwin, was a physician, the son of Erasmus Darwin, a poet, philosopher, and naturalist. Charles's mother, Susannah Wedgwood Darwin, died when he was eight years old. At age sixteen, Darwin left Shrewsbury to study medicine at Edinburgh University. Repelled by the sight of surgery performed without anesthesia, he eventually went to Cambridge Univeristy to prepare to become a clergyman in the Church of England. After receiving his degree, Darwin accepted an invitation to serve as an unpaid naturalist on the H.M.S. Beagle, which departed on a five-year scientific expedition to the Pacific coast of South America on 31 December, 1831. Darwin's research resulting from this voyage formed the basis of his famous book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection . Published in 1859, the work aroused a storm of controversy. Here Darwin outlined his theory of evolution, challenging the contemporary beliefs about the creation of life on earth. Darwin continued to write and publish his works on biology throughout his life. He lived with his wife and children at their home in the village of Downe, fifteen miles from London. Thought now to have suffered from panic disorder, as well as from Chagas' disease contracted during his travels in South America, Darwin was plagued with fatigue and intestinal sickness for the rest of his life. He died on 19 April, 1882, and lies buried in Westminster Abbey.

Kapitelübersicht: Charles Robert Darwin
Charles Robert Darwin
Biologe, Naturforscher Charles Robert Darwin * 12. Februar 1809 in Shrewsbury (Grafschaft Shropshire, England) Die auf zwei Jahre veranschlagte Forschungsreise dauerte schließlich fünf Jahre und wurde zu einer Weltumseglung. Dabei war das Leben und Arbeiten an Bord des zum Forschungsschiff umgebauten ehemaligen Marine-Zweimastsegler mit Namen "Beagle" schwer und für die "Landratte" Charles Darwin äußerst entbehrungsreich. Die Fahrt begann am 27. Dezember 1831 von Plymouth aus und führte nach Brasilien, zu den Galapagos-Inseln, nach Südafrika, zu mehreren Pazifik-Inseln, nach Neuseeland, Australien und zurück nach England, wo Schiff und Mannschaft schließlich am 2. Oktober 1936 in Falmouth anlegten und Darwin seine Familie wieder sah. Als im Jahre 1859 Charles Darwins grundlegendes Werk "On the origin of species by means of natural selection" ("Über den Ursprung der Arten durch natürliche Selektion"; auch nur kurz als "Die Entstehung der Arten" betitelt) erschien, bedeutete dies den Beginn des Wendepunktes in der Geschichte der Biologie und Medizin. Darwin stellte hier erstmals Prinzipien nicht nur über die (mögliche) tierische Abstammung des Menschen auf, sondern beschrieb auch die natürliche Zuchtwahl und das Überleben des Stärkeren als Naturprinzip der Lebensentwicklung.

25. Charles Darwin - The Truth?
Indepth investigation into the origins of 'The Origin of Species'.
Though he died nearly 120 years ago, Charles Darwin, best known as the author of The Origin of Species , is still a regular subject for books, TV programmes, magazine articles and, of course, for web sites. Charles Darwin (c.1840) Edward Blyth (1864) But what were the true origins of The Origins ? Was it all Darwin's own work, or were there other influences in play? Why did it take Charles Darwin more than 20 years to publish his ideas on evolution? And what really motivated him to finally write his magnum opus This is the story of not one but four men -
Charles Darwin, Edward Blyth,
Charles Lyell and Alfred Wallace. Each of them played a crucial role in the development and eventual publication of The Origin , but maybe not the ones we are familiar with. Welcome to Charles Darwin - The Truth? A new slant on Victorian science. Charles Lyell (1849) Alfred Wallace (1864) Important Note: The correct title of this study is "Charles Darwin - The Truth?" and not "Charles Darwin - The Truth". The question mark is mandatory and crucial. The evidence I present here is mainly the result of research carried out I was working as a history tutor (British history) in a UK 6th form college in the 1980s. I strongly believe that the evidence cited here points to certain conclusions about Darwin and his work. HOWEVER, I agree wholeheartedly with those sites linked to mine which advise their readers to treat this material with healthy scepticism. It is my hope that each visitor will examine the evidence and form their own conclusions.

Darwin, Charles (1809-1882)

English naturalist who was the grandson of Erasmus Darwin and father of physicist George Darwin . Darwin did poorly in school, and so could not secure employment following his graduation from divinity school. However, he was able to secure a position as ship's naturalist aboard the H. M.S. Beagle. The Beagle A Naturalist's Voyage on the Beagle (1839). Darwin, reflecting on his observation, developed a theory of evolution. According to this theory, individual variability means that some organisms have a slight advantage over others. The advantage will allow the organisms to compete better in the "struggle for existence" and produced more offspring, which will inherit the advantageous qualities. The process whereby favorable traits in the most "fit" animals allow it to survive and reproduce, Darwin called "natural selection." He included the idea of "sexual selection" in his theory, stating that the struggle for possession of females will lead the most vigorous males producing the most progeny. Darwin was probably influenced in his formulation of evolution by the Uniformitarian views expressed in Lyell's Principles of Geology

32. Charles Darwin La Evolución
Veinte a±os despu©s de su viaje por Sudam©rica y el Pac­fico, darwin public³ sus conclusiones sobre la evoluci³n de las especies.
"Una diferencia inferior
a un grano en una balanza
individuos han de vivir
y cuáles perecerán"
Al regreso de su viaje se casó y recopiló las notas del viaje, que publicó entre 1840 y 1843 con el título " ". En 1851 publicó también un valioso estudio sobre los cirrípedos (una subclase de crustáceos marinos).
Pero no fue hasta 1859 que publicó el libro en que había estado trabajando desde su regreso, hacía casi veinte años: " El origen de las especies ".
En " El Origen del Hombre ", publicado en 1871, defendió la teoría de que la evolución del hombre parte de un animal similar al mono. Las autoridades religiosas lo calificaron de ateo y blasfemo.

Thomas Henry Huxley
Profesor del Real Colegio de Médicos y Presidente de la Royal Society, Huxley recabó pruebas que apoyaran las teorías de Darwin, hasta el punto de ser apodado " el Bulldog de Darwin ".

Selon cette théorie longtemps admise, la création des espèces avait lieu par vagues. Chaque vague était détruite par une catastrophe naturelle. Les fossiles ne représentaient alors que des traces des espèces disparues. Cette théorie, largement inspirée de la Bible, imposait la fixité des espèces, leur immuabilité. Or, Lyell affirmait dans ces ouvrages que la surface de la Terre était soumise à des changements continuels induits par des forces naturelles.

Henslow half Darwin, sein angeschlagenes Selbstvertrauen wiederherzustellen und brachte ihm genaue Beobachtung bei und wies ihn an bei der Erstellung von Sammlungen. Mit 22 Jahren schloss Darwin seine Studien in Cambridge ab. Es wurde ihm - durch die hilfreiche Vermittlung von Henslow - das attraktive Angebot gemacht, mit dem englischen Forschungsschiff HMS Beagle eine Weltreise zu unternehmen.
