It has been more than a hundred years since Darwin made known his conception of evolution in the book On the Origin of Species. At the same time, the scientific community accepted his model almost unanimously. And that same period means that a better explanation for the evolution of life on our planet does not emerge.
In an entertaining way, taking advantage of his teaching experience, a Colombian, Antonio Vélez, an engineer, teacher and researcher from a lifetime in his native Antioquia, has written this extraordinary book that aspires to popularize the knowledge that exists on the subject, while offering answers to the most frequent questions it raises. Published in its first two editions by the University of Antioquia, the book competes without difficulty with the best that has been produced in this regard in the English-speaking world, having already "become a classic," according to Fred Spier, world authority in this field.
The author reminds us of the importance of thoroughly understanding evolutionary processes in order to approach current human behaviors, including social behaviors, and how we cannot unravel the nature of modern man without referring to his zoological origin.
The work has two parts, the why and the how. The first provides the foundations for the second, which explains the evolution of life, starting from the big bang, the physical evolution of the universe and biological development. The latter involves the history of the species. In addition to the author's original contributions, the work incorporates the most important things that have been published on the subject in the last twenty years.
This book fulfills the important work of scientific dissemination that our countries so require. And because it is in Spanish, it will prove invaluable to our youth.
