For the next five years, he conducted research on plants and animals from around the globe, amassing a body of evidence that would culminate in one of the greatest discoveries in the history of mankind--the theory of evolution. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&RDarwin presented his stunning insights in a landmark book that forever altered the way human beings view themselves and the world they live in. In &&LI&&RThe Origin of Species&&L/I&&R, he convincingly demonstrates the fact of evolution: that existing animals and plants cannot have appeared separately but must have slowly transformed from ancestral creatures. Most important, the book fully explains the mechanism that effects such a transformation: natural selection, the idea that made evolution scientifically intelligible for the first time. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&ROne of the few revolutionary works of science that is engrossingly readable, &&LI&&RThe Origin of Species&&L/I&&R not only launched the science of modern biology but also has influenced virtually all subsequent literary, philosophical, and religious thinking. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&R&&LB&&RGeorge Levine&&L/B&&R, Kenneth Burke Professor of English Literature at Rutgers University, has written extensively about Darwin and the relation of science and literature, particularly in&&LI&&R Darwin and the Novelists&&L/I&&R. He is the author of many related books, including &&LI&&RThe Realistic Imagination, Dying to Know&&L/I&&R, and his birdwatching memoirs, &&LI&&RLifebirds&&L/I&&R. &&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
