The Expression of The Emotions in Man and Animals

The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals is a book by Charles Darwin, published in 1872, concerning genetically determined aspects of behaviour. It was published thirteen years after On The Origin of Species and is, alongside his 1871 book The Descent of Man, Darwin's main consideration of human origins. In this book, Darwin seeks to trace the animal origins of human characteristics, such as the pursing of the lips in concentration and the tightening of the muscles around the eyes in anger and efforts of memory. Darwin sought out the opinions of some eminent British psychiatrists in the preparation of the book, which forms Darwin's main contribution to psychology.The Expression of the Emotions is also - like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) - an important landmark in the history of book illustration.

Famous quotes containing the words animals, man, emotions and/or expression:

    Shall we never have done with that cliché, so stupid that it could only be human, about the sympathy of animals for man when he is unhappy? Animals love happiness almost as much as we do. A fit of crying disturbs them, they’ll sometimes imitate sobbing, and for a moment they’ll reflect our sadness. But they flee unhappiness as they flee fever, and I believe that in the long run they are capable of boycotting it.
    Colette [Sidonie Gabrielle Colette] (1873–1954)

    What war has always been is a puberty ceremony. It’s a very rough one, but you went away a boy and came back a man, maybe with an eye missing or whatever but godammit you were a man and people had to call you a man thereafter.
    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)

    I have been amazed by the Anglo-Saxon’s lack of curiosity about the internal lives and emotions of the Negroes, and for that matter, any non-Anglo-Saxon peoples within our borders, above the class of unskilled labor.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Disease is a vital expression of the human organism.
    Georg Groddeck (1866–1934)
