Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation...L'origine delle specie scritto dal naturalista inglese Charles Darwin, è una tra le opere cardine nella storia scientifica, e indubbiamente una delle più eminenti in biologia. Pubblicata per la prima volta il 24 novembre 1859, in essa Darwin spiega la sua teoria, secondo cui «gruppi» di organismi di una stessa specie si evolvono gradualmente nel tempo attraverso il processo di selezione naturale, un meccanismo che venne illustrato per la prima volta a un pubblico generico proprio grazie a questo libro.

The world around us is saturated with numbers. They are a fundamental pillar of our modern society, and accepted and used with hardly a second thought. But how did this state of affairs come to be? In this book, Leo Corry tells the story behind the idea of number from the early days of the Pythagoreans, up until the turn of the twentieth century. He presents an overview of how numbers were handled and conceived in classical Greek mathematics, in the mathematics of Islam, in European mathematics of the middle ages and the Renaissance, during the scientific revolution, all the way through to the mathematics of the 18th to the early 20th century. Focusing on both foundational debates and practical use numbers, and showing how the story of numbers is intimately linked to that of the idea of equation, this book provides a valuable insight to numbers for undergraduate students, teachers, engineers, professional mathematicians, and anyone with an interest in the history of mathematics.
