Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume XXIX is the legendary travel adventure and naturalist's diary by English scientist, naturalist, and geologist CHARLES DARWIN (1809-1882), which features the research and observations that formed the basis for his revolutionary 1859 work, On the Origin of Species. First published in 1839 under the title Journal and Remarks, The Voyage of the Beagle is the enthralling account of the five-year journey he undertook on the HMS Beagle, an English exploratory vessel, which sailed South America and the South Pacific from 1831 to 1836. It is even more fascinating for the hints it offers of Darwin's thought processes, which would later forever change the field of biology.

In der Literatur um 1900 schlagen sich zwei folgenreiche Entwicklungen nieder, die das Individuum an der Epochenschwelle in Unsicherheit versetzen: zum einen der Verlust historischer und metaphysischer Orientierung, zum anderen eine Krise der Wahrnehmung. Die Konsequenzen dieser beiden Prozesse für die Sinnbildungsstrategien des Subjekts zeichnet Jan Rohden am Beispiel europäischer Autoren des Fin de Siècle nach. Er arbeitet heraus, wie in Texten von Huysmans, D’Annunzio, Hofmannsthal und Wilde jeweils der Versuch unternommen wird, die verspürte historischmetaphysische Orientierungslosigkeit zu kompensieren. Die gemeinsame Grundlage dafür und zugleich ein charakteristisches Merkmal aller Werke bildet eine spezifische Form der Wahrnehmung. At the end of the 19th century, two important developments, which both effect fin de siècle literature, unsettle the European subject: the loss of historical and metaphysical security on the one hand and a profound crisis of perception on the other. Jan Rohden examines the effects of both developments on the European subject’s solution approaches for finding historical and metaphysical meaning. In his analysis of selected texts of Huysmans’, D’Annunzio’s, Hofmannsthal’s and Wilde’s, he identifies a similar attempt of all the four authors to compensate for the lack of historical and metaphysical meaning, which is based on a specific form of perception.

Just over one hundred and thirty years ago Charles Darwin, in The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871), developed remarkably accurate conclusions about man's ancestry, based on a review of general comparative anatomy and psychology in which he regarded sexual selection as a necessary part of the evolutionary process. But the attention of biologists turned to the more general concept of natural selection, in which sexual selection plays a complex role that has been little understood. This volume significantly broadens the scope of modern evolutionary biology by looking at this important and long neglected concept of great importance. In this book, which is the first full discussion of sexual selection since 1871, leading biologists bring modern genetic theory and behavior observation to bear on the subject. The distinguished authors consider many aspects of sexual selection in many species, including man, within the context of contemporary evolutionary theory and research. The result is a remarkably original and well-rounded view of the whole concept that will be invaluable especially to students of evolution and human sexual behavior. The lucid authority of the contributors and the importance of the topic will interest all who share in man's perennial fascination with his own history. The book will be of central importance to a wide variety of professionals, including biologists, anthropologists, and geneticists. It will be an invaluable supplementary text for courses in vertebrate biology, theory of evolution, genetics, and physical anthropology. It is especially important with the emergence of alternative explanations of human development, under the rubric of creationism and doctrines of intelligent design. Bernard G. Campbell is professor of anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Born in Weybridge, England, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1957, and has been a lecturer in anthropology at Cambridge and Harvard Universities. Among his many contributions to the field of anthropology is Human Evolution: An Introduction to Man's Adaptations.

On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation ofevolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.
