Summary Ú The Voyage of the Beagle ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Charles Robert Darwin was een Engels autodidact op het gebied van natuurlijke historie biologie en geologie Darwin ontleent zijn roem aan zijn theorie dat evolutie van soorten wordt gedreven door natuurlijke selectie Het bestaan van evolutie werd nog tijdens zijn leven binnen een groot deel van de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap geaccepteerd De acceptatie van natuurlijke selectie als aandrijvend mechanisme liet langer op zich wachten en is tegenwoordig onomstreden Darwin werd gelovig opgevoed en opgeleid volgens de filosofie van de in die tijd in Engeland gangbare. To listen to this book review as a podcast click below book is really a rare treasure Is there anything comparable Here we have the very man whose ideas have revolutionized completely our understanding of life writing with charm about the very voyage which sparked and shaped his thinking on the subject And even if this book wasn t a window into the mind of one of history s most influential thinkers it would still be entertaining on its own merits Indeed the public at the time thought so making Darwin into a bestselling author I can hardly imagine how fascinating it would have been for a nineteenth century Englishman to read about the strange men and beasts in different parts of the world Today the world is so flat that almost nothing can surprise But what this book has lost in exotic charm it makes up for in historical interest for now it is a fascinating glimpse into the world 150 years ago Through Darwin s narrative we both look out at the world as it was and into the mind of a charming man And Darwin was charming How strange it is that one of today s most vicious debates creationism vs evolution religion vs science was ignited by somebody as mild mannered and likable as Mr Darwin His most outstanding characteristic is his curiosity everything Darwin sees he wants to learn about In England any person fond of natural history enjoys in his walks a great advantage by always having something to attract his attention but in these fertile climates teeming with life the attractions are so numerous that he is scarcely able to walk at all As a result the range of topics touched upon in this volume is extraordinary botany entomology geology anthropology paleontology the list goes on Darwin collects and dissects every creature he can get his hands on he examines fish birds mammals insects spiders Admittedly the descriptions of anatomy and geological strata were often so detailed as to be tedious Darwin though brilliant could be very dry In the course of these descriptions Darwin also indulged in uite a bit of speculation offering an interesting glimpse into both his thought process and the state of science at that time I wonder if any edition includes follow ups of these conjectures it would ve been interesting to see how they panned out In retrospect it is almost unsurprising that Darwin came up with his theory of evolution for he encounters many things that are perplexing and inexplicable without it Darwin finds fossils of extinct megafauna and wonders how animals so large could have perished completely He famously sees examples of one body plan being adapted like a theme and variations in the finches of the Galapagos Islands He also notes that the fauna and flora on those islands are related to though uite different from that in mainland South America If life there was created separately why wouldn t it be completely different And if it was indeed descended from the animals on the mainland what made it changeDarwin also sees abundant examples of convergent evolution two distinct evolutionary lines producing similar results in similar circumstances in Australia A little time before this I had been lying on a sunny bank and was reflecting on the strange character of the animals in this country as compared with the rest of the world An unbeliever in everything but his own reason might exclaim Two distinct Creators must have been at work their object however has been the same certainly the end in each case is complete More surprisingly Darwin finds that animals in isolated uninhabited islands tend to have no fear of humans And strangely enough an individual animal from these islands can t even be taught to fear humans Why Darwin asks does an individual bird in Europe fear humans even though it s never been harmed by one And why can t you train an individual bird from an isolated island to fear humans My favorite anecdote is of Darwin repeatedly throwing a turtle into the water and having it return to him again and again because as Darwin notes its natural predators are ocean bound and it has adapted to see the land as a place of safety Darwin also manages to walk right up to an unwary fox and kill it with his geological hammer You can see how all of these experiences so odd without a theory of evolution become clear as day when Darwin s ideas are embraced Indeed many are still textbook examples of the implications of his theories This book would have been extraordinary just for the light it sheds on Darwin s early experiences in biology but it contains many entertaining anecdotes as well It is almost a Bildungsroman we see the young Darwin a respectable Englishman astounded and amazed by the wide world He encounters odd creatures meets strange men and travels through bizarre landscapes And like all good coming of age stories he often makes a fool of himselfThe main difficulty in using either a lazo or bolas is to ride so well as to be able at full speed and while suddenly turning about to whirl them so steadily about the head as to take aim on foot any person would soon learn the art One day as I was amusing myself by galloping and whirling the balls round my head by accident the free one struck a bush and its revolving motion being thus destroyed it immediately fell to the ground and like magic caught one hind leg of my horse the other ball was then jerked out of my hand and the horse fairly secured Luckily he was an old practiced animal and knew what it meant otherwise he would probably have kicked till he had thrown himself down The Gauchos roared with laughter they cried they had seen every sort of animal caught but had never before seen a man caught by himselfAt this point I m tempted to get carried away and include all of the many uotes that I liked Darwin writes movingly about the horrors of slavery he includes some vivid description of savages and even tells some funny stories But I ll leave these uotes to be discovered by the curious reader who in his passage through the pages of this book will indulge in a voyage far comfortable than and perhaps half as fascinating as Darwin s own At the very least the fortunate reader need not fear exotic diseases Darwin suffered from ill health the rest of his days or heed Darwin s warning to the potential traveler at sea If a person suffer much from sea sickness let him weigh it heavily in the balance I speak from experience it is no trifling evil which may be cured in a week

Summary Ú The Voyage of the Beagle ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Natuurlijke theologie die religie en weten schap verenigde Dankzij de waarnemingen en ontdekkingen die hij in de loop van zijn leven deed ging hij echter steeds meer twijfelen over zowel de gangbare ideeën over soortvorming als zijn persoonlijke geloof Tijdens een onderzoeks reis met het schip de Beagle 1831 1836 bezocht Darwin Zuid Amerika Australië het zuiden van Afrika en diverse eilandengroepen in de Grote en Indische Oceaan Op al deze plekken bestudeerde hij de plaatselijke dieren planten fossielen en geologie Een groot deel van zijn verdere leven was ge. Darwin s own account of the now almost legendary five year voyage of the Beagle is an entertaining illuminating and fascinating read Darwin writes with such enthusiasm that it s difficult not to be swept up in the journey and the remarkable things he witnessed and studied as he circumnavigated the globeThe only thing I found slightly disappointing was Darwin s attitude towards some of the peoples or as he refers to them savages he interacted with on his trek Darwin was famously anti slavery but it becomes painfully clear in the reading of this book that he did not object to slavery because he saw slaves as eual human beings suffering a horrific injustice but rather he objected to slavery in the same way somebody today might object to cruelty to animals He took pity on slaves but he still regarded them as lesser beings His views may have been progressive for his time but perhaps unrealistically I d hoped for
