brings Darwin to date and with such varied sentence structures - style
  wanderland | Jul 26, 2019 |
Zeer interessante en begrijpelijke uitleg over het Darwinisme en het ontstaan van soorten en diversiteit. Hij behandelt het klassieke Darwinisme en de ontwikkelingen en inzichten sindsdien tot ongeveer het begin van de 21ste eeuw. Toegankelijke introductie voor iedereen die meer wil weten over dit onderwerp. ( )

This book is a decent update on the Origin of Species, taking the original format, the same chapter headings, and then evaluating the state of the science in the current world. It would be an easier way to introduce students to Darwin, since it is much more modern in writing style, and not burdened with the long-winded Victorian style that would set most modern youngsters groaning in despair.

Absolutley fabulous book covering everything about how we know evolution is what actually happened; just brilliant, took me forever and a day to read it but it was never a slow read, just thick and dense with fascinating facts and explanations. Highly recommended. ( )

A look at Origin of Species from the vantage point of modern science. Lots of interesting facts, even if some, but not many, slightly dated already- the book was published 10 years ago. All in all, a huge affirmation of Darwin’s work and his achievements.
One complaint. Even though the book is very interesting, the style is sometimes convoluted. It doesn’t have the reading ease of Dawkins' books.

An interesting quote:

Too often, the notion of progress is used as a code word for perfection, the chain of being in a different guise. The term should be employed with caution. Some see an arrow of time in biology, as in physics, but in the opposite direction- a relentless tendency to improve, just as a universe has a built-in trend towards chaos and disorder. That is too optimistic. Some lineages get more complicated, some simpler, and much of life has to struggle to stay in the same place. If everyone is evolving, nobody can afford to stop, and there may be constant change with no overall advance at all. ( )

But with regard to the material world, we can at least go so far as this - we can perceive that events are brought about not by insulated interpositions of Divine power, exerted in each particular case, but by the establishment of generl laws.
W. WHERWELL, Bridgewater Treatise
To conclude, therefore, let no man out of a weak conceit of sobriety, or an ill-applied moderation, think or maintain, that a man can search too far or be too well studied in the book of God's word, or in the book of God's works, divinity or philosophy; but rather let men endeavour an endless progress or proficience in both.

Two of the worst of all lines of English poetry, written in 1799 by John Hookham Frere:
'The feather'd race with pinions skim te air -
Not so the mackerek, and still less the bear!'
However poor that verse, it has a moral. The lines come from Frere's somewhat neglected work 'The Progress of Man; Poetry of the Anti-Jacobin'. Birds, Bears and fish carry a political message. Things are as they are and it is folly to change them. The French Revolution disturbed the God-given order: to proclaim the rights of man was as absurd as to suggest that mankind - or even bears - might fly.

(An historical sketch of the progress of opinion on the origin of species)
According to a 1991 opinion poll, a hundred million Americans believe that 'God created man pretty much in his present form at one time during the last tn thusand years'.

(Introduction)
Man has a strange relationship with his domestic animals. The Victorian explorer William Burchell found himself unable to eat zebra when he was near starvation in Africa, because of its resemblance to his favourite mare.
