Erasmus Darwin House

Erasmus Darwin House. This is the house where Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802), British physician and grandfather of Charles Darwin, lived from 1756 to 1781. Erasmus Darwin is best known as one of the founder members of the Lunar Society, where he composed many writings on science, some of which were in verse. Darwin's most famous work, Zoonomia (1796), briefly proposed a theory of evolution in response to environmental pressures, anticipating and foreshadowing the evolutionary ideas proposed later by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Charles Darwin.

Charles Darwin commemorative plaque Featured 23 Dec 2008 Image

Charles Darwin commemorative plaque

Charles Darwin. Plaque commemorating the British naturalist Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882). Darwin is most famous for his theories on evolution discussed in On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, which he published in 1859. In this book Darwin proposed that natural variation within a species creates many individual traits, some more useful than others. He suggested that only those individuals with the most competitive traits (those that are best suited to their environment) survive to reproduce. This plaque is on a wall of The Mount, Shrewsbury, Darwin's birthplace and family home
