Introduction by Edward J. Larson Perhaps the most readable and accessible of the great works of scientific inquiry, The Origin of Species sold out its first printing on the very day it was published in 1859. Theologians quickly labeled Charles Darwin the most dangerous man in England and, as the Saturday Review noted, the uproar over the book quickly “passed beyond the bounds of the study and lecture-room into the drawing-room and the public street.” Based largely on Darwin’s experience as a naturalist while on a five-year voyage aboard H. M. S. Beagle, The Origin of Species set forth a theory of evolution and natural selection that challenged contemporary beliefs about divine providence and the immutability of species. This Modern Library edition includes a Foreword by the Pulitzer Prize–winning science historian Edward J. Larson, an introductory historical sketch, and a glossary Darwin later added to the original text.

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time Samuel Butler was among the most wide-ranging of the accomplished crew of late Victorian writers to which be belonged -- a forceful controversialist in the debates that surrounded Darwin's theory of evolution, a painter who sometimes exhibited at the Royal Academy, an idiosyncratic critic and a gifted travel writer, and even, in his early years, a highly successful sheep farmer in New Zealand. He was also, as The Way of All Flesh, his deterministic tale of the havoc wrought by genetic inheritance, suggests, one of the great British masters of the novel of ideas.

Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals.

This state of the art collection offers fresh perspectives on why intersections between literature, religion, and ethics can address the fault lines of modernity and are not necessarily the cause of modernity's 'faults.' From a diverse cohort of scholars from around the world, with appointments in comparative literature and other disciplines, the essays suggest that the imagined hegemony of a Judeo-Christian Western project is neither exclusively true nor productive. However, the essays also suggest that elements of the Western religious traditions are important vectors for understanding modernity's complicated relationship to the past.

Es gehört mittlerweile zu unserer Alltagsmoral, dass zumindest jene Tiere, die uns etwas angehen, zu schützen sind. Auf der Grundlage dieses auch gesetzlich verankerten Common Sense ist die Auseinandersetzung mit der konkreten Verantwortung gegenüber Tieren in eine neue Phase gelangt: Stilprägend in der Tierschutzdebatte waren bislang Prinzipien, welche die Vermeidung von Leid, Schmerzen und Schäden zum Ziel hatten. Gegenwärtig rücken jedoch zudem Begriffe wie »Würde der Tiere«, »Mitgeschöpflichkeit«, »Integrität« und »Tierrechte« in den Vordergrund, womit sich Tierschutz nicht allein am biologischen Organismus ausrichtet. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, Bezugspunkte des verantwortlichen Umganges mit Tieren aufzuzeigen und aus der Sicht relevanter wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen systematisch zusammenzustellen. Nach »Gefährten – Konkurrenten – Verwandte« von Carola Otterstedt und Michael Rosenberger entwickelt dieses Werk die Grundlagen für die interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit im Bereich der Mensch-Tier-Beziehung und des Tierschutzes weiter und identifiziert vor dem Hintergrund aktueller gesellschaftlicher Herausforderungen neue Forschungsfelder.
