Charles Robert Darwin, born in 1809, was an English naturalist who founded the theory of Darwinism, the belief in evolution as determined by natural selection. Although Darwin studied medicine at Edinburgh University, and then studied at Cambridge University to become a minister, he had been interested in natural history all his life. Konrad Lorenz was an Austrian zoologist whose specialty, the biological origins of social behavior, is of major interest to psychologists.

Charles Darwin, Konrad Lorenz. Why do we bite people we feel affection towards? Why do dogs wag their tails? Or cats purr? Why do we get embarrassed, and why does embarrassment make us blush?

Charles Darwin, Konrad Lorenz. Why do we bite people we feel affection towards? Why do dogs wag their tails? Or cats purr? Why do we get embarrassed, and why does embarrassment make us blush? These, and many other questions about the emotional life of man and animals are answered in this remarkable book.

The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals is Charles Darwin's third major work of evolutionary theory, following On the Origin of Species (1859) and The Descent of Man (1871). Initially intended as a chapter in The Descent of Man, The Expression was published separately in 1872 and concerns the biological aspects of emotional life.

In other words, a man like Darwin knows much more than he thinks he knows, and it is not surprising that the consequences of his knowledge reach far and in different directions.

His work is in every way deeply interesting; it includes graphic descriptions of the various emotions, and is admirably illustrated.

He may with justice be said, not only to have laid the foundations of the subject as a branch of science, but to have built up a noble structure. His work is in every way deeply interesting; it includes graphic descriptions of the various emotions, and is admirably illustrated.

Darwin’s thesis is that if the outward signs of behavior and emotions are shown to be universal in man and similar to animals then they must be due to inherited evolutionary adaptation, not culturally acquired characteristics. Several British psychiatrists, in particular James Crichton-Browne, were consultants for the book, which forms Darwin’s main contribution to psychology

This book engaged some of the hardest questions in the evolution debate, and it showed the ever-cautious Darwin at his boldest.

Darwin's work of 1872 still provides the point of departure for research in the theory of emotion and expression. Although he lacked the modern research tool of cybernetics, his basic methods have not been improved upon: the study of infants, of the insane, of paintings and sculpture, of some of the commoner animals; the use of photographs of expression submitted to different judges; and the comparative study of expression among different peoples. This new edition will be warmly welcomed by those behavioral scientists who have recently shown an intense interest in the scientific study of expression. Lay readers, too, will be struck by the freshness and directness of this book, which includes, among other data, Darwin's delightfully objective analysis of his own baby's smiles and pouts.

I also received a copy of the text only copy of this book. I am extremely disappointed. This book is meant to be filled with illustrations including Darwin's studies in asylum's taking pictures of the insane and other drawings of animals, etc. That I received this cheap text only copy clearly printed by some knock-off printer makes me really angry. This book is useless without the pictures and diagrams. Period.

This book is atrocious. I expected to get a copy of one of Darwin's masterpieces, but instead I got an abomination that appears to be printed in someone's garage. That there isn't even a publisher's name on the front pages should be considered a warning to all those considering purchasing this mess! I understand that this book is already in public domain, but seriously... the publisher did not even try.

There are no diagrams or photographs in this book. Not one! These diagrams and photos are what made Darwin's ideas more tangible. Without them, one is left to wonder what exactly inspired Darwin to develop these ideas.

The warning is clear: Stay away from this disaster. If you need a copy of "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals" look for one that includes the photographs.

While other works by Darwin often get the most notice, this book is a key work by a scientist clearly working through the consequences of his at-the-time new theory of evolution via natural selection. The book itself explores how Human emotions, expressed outwardly, look the same (or, in some cases not) as their close primate relations. Firstly, the concept that animals /had/ emotions to express might have been considered outrageous by some, and secondly how the book was lavishly illustrated was novel for the time as well.

To understand how Darwin was thinking about Human origins, it's insufficient to just purchase and read the Descent of Man- this book is a must.

Secondly, this edition of the book has proven to be a very good one for me- the illustrations are clear and I've enjoyed the typeset. While it's possible to find a PDF of the book online, I find having this useful for showing to students.

I purchased this book because I love to study about people and how they work. Excellent book.

This book is a very nice readding info about the researches of Darwin. In parallel with the discoveries made on nature, he always make a relationship with home enviroment animals, such as dogs, cats and other pets.

On Kindle version, theres some problems in diagramming, so sometimes you need to pay atention to identify that is text from notes and observations.

Amazon has a weird policy of lumping together reviews for all the different editions of this book. The bound, Oxford University Press version, with commentary by Paul Ekman, is fantastic. None of the problems with other editions apply to the Ekman version. Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews - the Oxford edition will not disappoint. It has all the original text and photos, it is beautifully produced, and it includes lots of extras too in the form of Ekman's commentary and an essay on the famous illustrations.

It is a very abbridged version and without ilustrations which are important here.
A revealing book about the science personality of Charles Darwin....mostly unheard of. Recommended reading.
