Product Overview

THE DESCENT OF MAN (1871) looks at the emergence of humans in terms of primate evolution. Charles Darwin (1809-1882) focuses on the origin and history of our own species, claiming that humans are closest in ancestry to African chimpanzees and gorillas. Darwin presents a strictly mechanistic and materialistic interpretation of the human animal that is free from superstition and spiritualism.
