Charles Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist that lived in the 1800s. He is best-known for his contribution to the theory of evolution. He published his theory in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species.
Regardless of your beliefs about creation and evolution, Charles Darwin’s theory was a game-changer in the world, and is well worth understanding today.
Our Darwin resource is part of our Great Scientists collection. Originally I created this collection when one of my sons was in Classical Conversations’ Challenge B program. He had a lot of research to do and papers to write, so I put together resource collections for each scientist they were studying that year, to make it simpler to have quality information available quickly and easily. Now it’s available for you, too! Charles is in good company with other scientists, such as Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, and others.
