Un vistazo a la mente de uno de los gigantes intelectuales del mundo

Las Autobiografías de Charles Darwin (1809-1882) brindan una visión fascinante de la mente y las experiencias de uno de los gigantes intelectuales del mundo. Comienzan con recuerdos atractivos de su infancia y juventud y de su floreciente curiosidad científica y amor por el mundo natural, lo que lo llevó a unirse a la expedición en el Beagle. Darwin sigue esto con un resumen de su carrera y termina con un recuento del trabajo de su vida. Intercalados con estos recuerdos hay retratos fascinantes, desde su devota esposa Emma y su talentoso padre, ambos intimidantes y amables, hasta las principales figuras del mundo científico victoriano que contó entre sus amigos, incluidos Lyell y Huxley. Honestas y esclarecedoras, estas memorias revelan a un hombre que estaba aislado por sus controvertidas creencias y cuyos imponentes logros fueron alcanzados por una pasión de por vida por los descubrimientos de la ciencia.

A glimpse into the mind of one of the world’s intellectual giants

The Autobiographies of Charles Darwin (1809-82) provide a fascinating glimpse into the mind and experiences of one of the world’s intellectual giants. They begin with engaging memories of his childhood and youth and of his burgeoning scientific curiosity and love of the natural world, which led to him joining the expedition on the Beagle. Darwin follows this with survey of his career and ends with a reckoning of his life’s work. Interspersed with these recollections are fascinating portraits – from his devoted wife Emma and his talented father, both bullying and kind, to the leading figures of the Victorian scientific world he counted among his friends, including Lyell and Huxley. Honest and illuminating, these memoirs reveal a man who was isolated by his controversial beliefs and whose towering achievements were attained by a life-long passion for the discoveries of science.
