Salvou-se assim a população de Lisboa graças à valentia ao sacrifício dos portuenses que deram toda a carne que restava nos armazéns da cidade do Porto, guardando para si, engenhosamente, os "miúdos” dos animais, ou seja: os orgãos e as tripas; geralmente deitados fora.

Todos os corpos naturaes, de que se compoem o Globo da Terra, e que lhe estaõ inherentes, alem das primarias qualidades, que constituem a sua essencia, e os fazem uteis, saõ dotados de outras qualidades secundarias, que prehenchendo tambem este mesmo fim, os fazem ao mesmo tempo agradaveis. As primarias qualidades dos corpos saõ a figura, a grandeza, a contextura das suas partes constituentes, e outras. As secundarias porem consistem no som, no gosto, no cheiro, na Cor &c. Aquellas chamaõ-se primarias, porque dellas se compoem a essencia de todos os corpos: estas se dizem secundarias, porque saõ accidentes separaveis dos mesmos corpos. Mas, de todas estas qualidades, eu naõ fallarei que da differente organizaçaõ ou contextura dos corpos, e da sua Cor; por serem as outras alheas do prezente assumpto.

Le livre couvre une variété de sujets, y compris les mathématiques, les phénomènes naturels (comme les théories sur la source de aurores boréales, les ouragans et les étoiles filantes), l'économie, la croissance de la population, et l'épidémie de 1752 de la variole à Boston.

Genre: Life Sciences

Seller: Public Domain

Charles Darwin's Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871) was the single most important European or American nineteenth-century statement that man is an integral part of the animal kingdom. As a work of science, Descent of Man mattered more, and was more coherent, rigorous, and in tune with scientific opinion than that of any of its predecessors in evolutionary theory. Darwin's "Man book" was a bigger immediate success than any of his other books, including the epochal Origin of Species (1859), and it was soon translated into numerous languages. Darwin wrote with engaging literary style, charming modesty, brilliant argument, and a discursive method of proof, making the book an exhilarating romp through the Earth's known natural history and our own history as well as contemporary scientists knew it.

L'impression dominante n'est pourtant pas l'effroi, mais la fascination. Une fascination que les siècles n'altèrent pas et que Pascal explique lui-même : On s'attendait de voir un auteur et on trouve un homme . Pascal ne se comporte pas en auteur il ne construit pas une uvre littéraire : il se contente de répondre aux sollicitations de Port-Royal et de se battre pour la vérité scientifique morale religieuse. À côté des Provinciales et des autres polémiques religieuses le premier volume de cette nouvelle édition des uvres complètes de Pascal contient des documents sur le personnage, ses travaux touchant la géométrie les probabilités l'arithmétique (dont la célèbre machine arithmétique ) et la physique tous textes qui pour être ceux d'un scientifique de génie n'ne sont pas moins écrits dans la langue d'un honnête homme. Outre des Lettres différents Opuscules et autres écrits le tome II et dernier contient les Pensées.

Agesilaus, king of Sparta, when asked what things boys should learn, replied, "Those which they will practise when they become men." As health requires the observance of the laws inherent to the different organs of the human system, so not only boys, but girls, should acquire a knowledge of the laws of their organization. If sound morality depends upon the inculcation of correct principles in youth, equally so does a sound physical system depend on a correct physical education during the same period of life. If the teacher and parents who are deficient in moral feelings and sentiments, are unfit to communicate to children and youth those high moral principles demanded by the nature of man, so are they equally incompetent directors of the physical training of the youthful system, if ignorant of the organic laws and the physiological conditions upon which health and disease depend.

Les singularités judiciaires sont nombreuses et variées au moyen âge, et souvent les magistrats interviennent dans des circonstances si bizarres, que nous avons peine à comprendre, de nos jours, comment ces graves organes de la justice ont pu raisonnablement figurer dans de telles affaires. Toutefois notre but n'est pas de critiquer ici des usages plus ou moins absurdes, mais d'en constater simplement l'existence. Nous bornons notre rôle à raconter les faits, sauf au lecteur à en tirer lui-même les conséquences.

The following Narrative is only a part of a voyage undertaken for the purpose of conveying the Bread-fruit Tree from the South Sea Islands to the West Indies. The manner in which this expedition miscarried, with the subsequent transactions and events, are here related. This part of the voyage is not first in the order of time, yet the circumstances are so distinct from that by which it was preceded, that it appears unnecessary to delay giving as much early information as possible concerning so extraordinary an event. The rest will be laid before the Public as soon as it can be got ready; and it is intended to publish it in such a manner, as, with the present Narrative, will make the account of the voyage compleat.

La grande trilogie de Michelet (L'Insecte, La Mer, L'Oiseau) est une épopée : celle de l'homme du XIXe siècle, confiant dans lui-même, qui s'ouvre à la merveille qu'est le monde et apprend à le respecter. Dans L’Oiseau (1856), il se découvrait une veine nouvelle et très réussie. Ce sujet de l’histoire naturelle ne fut pas traité du point de vue de la science tout court, ni de celui du sentiment, ni de l’anecdote ou des commérages, mais de celui du panthéisme démocratique fervent de l’auteur.

The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex is a book on evolutionary theory by English naturalist Charles Darwin, first published in 1871. It was Darwin's second book on evolutionary theory, following his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species, in which he explored the concept of natural selection. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.
