    My summary of Charles Darwin impact

    Charles Darwin was an English naturalist, geologist, and biologist who impacted science and the philosophy of science in many ways. He wrote three books, on the origins of species, The Voyage of the Beagle, and the descent of man. Through these three books he formed the basis of our understanding of evolution and natural selection. His achievement was to propose that life, including human life, developed, and could be explained, without the existence of supernatural force
