Charles Darwin, geb. 1809 in Shrewsbury, England geboren, studierte u.a. Medizin und Theologie; sein sein eigentliches Interesse aber galt der Geologie und Biologie. Im Jahre 1831 ging er von Plymouth aus auf eine Weltreise, die die Weichen fur sein ganzes weiteres Leben und Schaffen stellte. Charles Darwin starb 1882. Seine Werke gelten auch bis heute noch als Meilensteine der Soziologie und der Kulturwissenschaften. Das vorliegende Buch enthalt Darwins Thesen zu der Entstehung des Menschen: Er ging davon aus, dass alle Facetten des menschlichen Verhaltens, vor allem aber die moralischen und intellektuellen Fahigkeiten, nicht angeboren sind, sondern sich erst uber einen langeren Zeitraum entwickeln. Er geht daruber hinaus von einem Mehrstufensytem aus und dass jede Zivilisation jede dieser Stufe im Laufe ihrer Entwicklung durchlauft.

This is the second volume in Brett Kahr's 'Interviews with Icons' series, following on from Tea with Winnicott. Professor Kahr, himself a highly regarded psychoanalyst, turns his attention to the work of the father of psychoanalysis. The book is lavishly illustrated by Alison Bechdel, winner of the MacArthur Foundation 'Genius' Award.Sigmund Freud pays another visit to Vienna's renowned Cafe Landtmann, where he had often enjoyed reading newspapers and sipping coffee. Freud explains how he came to invent psychoanalysis, speaks bluntly about his feelings of betrayal by Carl Gustav Jung, recounts his flight from the Nazis, and so much more, all the while explaining his theories of symptom formation and psychosexuality.Framed as a 'posthumous interview', the book serves as the perfect introduction to the work of Freud while examining the context in which he lived and worked. Kahr examines his legacy and considers what Freud has to teach us. In a world where manifestations of sexuality and issues of the mind are ever more widely discussed, the work of Sigmund Freud is more relevant than ever.

This volume is part of the definitive edition of letters written by and to Charles Darwin, the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. Notes and appendixes put these fascinating and wide-ranging letters in context, making the letters accessible to both scholars and general readers. Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. The letters are published chronologically: volume 20 includes letters from 1872, the year in which The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals was published, making ground-breaking use of photography. Also in this year, the sixth and final edition of On the Origin of Species was published and Darwin resumed his work on carnivorous plants and plant movement, finding unexpected similarities between the plant and animal kingdoms.
