3/22/2016 John Ferrone IHP: Ideas In Western Tradition ~Charles Darwin ● Darwin often pondered the “Secret” theory of transmutation(Modern Evolution). ● Darwin's health was often compromised and at risk(Because of this his work took much longer to complete). ● Darwin saw humankind as part of the living world(In contrast to the more popular Christian view of creation). ● Darwin's “Sandwalk” or thinking path was where he first formulated his ideas on biodiversity. ● Darwin did not conceive his idea of evolution while on the Galapagos Islands, instead he conceived of them later in reflection of his experiences. ● In Darwin's “Transmutation Notebooks”,he stated that “All things stemmed from older similar living things.” ● Darwins theory on natural selection came from an inquiry into Thomas Malthus's Essays on population growth. ● “War of nature destroys the Weaklings!” ● After the death of his daughter, Darwin lost his Christian faith. ● Animals become individually connected within their respective environments(Principle of Divergence). ● Many analogies to pigeons and their common ancestors throughout the “Origin of Species”.
