    Published in 1872, "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals" was a book at the very heart of Darwin's research interests - a central pillar of his 'human' series. This book engaged some of the hardest questions in the evolution debate, and it showed the ever-cautious Darwin at his boldest. If Darwin had one goal with Expression, it was to demonstrate the power of his theories for explaining the origin of our most cherished human qualities: morality and intellect. As Darwin explained, 'He who admits, on general ... Show more

Outstanding research!

This book clearly demonstrates the brilliance of Darwin, His work is still used to day in the study of emotional dynamics.

Another classic from Darwin

by JohnL on Aug 23, 2008

Darwin?s The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals came after The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man. In this work Darwin illustrates the basic suite of human facial expressions and allied bodily movements and relates these to the expression of emotions in animals. He provides a very argument for how far genetics preponderate in the expression of emotions, and at what point human gestures and expressions come to be determined by culture. His solution is that the basic suite of emotions have a universal expression in all human societies, but that beyond these, gestures are culturally-determined. (The expression of emotions are also culturally-determined in that different societies have different rules on how openly individuals are allowed to express the basic emotions). Would that more intemperate researchers of later times (those who try to put everything down to nature or, alternatively, everything down to culture) read these pages and took note. Paul Ekman?s edition is a putative third edition of the work; The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals had only one edition during Darwin?s lifetime. A second edition was edited by his son and published after his death, but did not include all the material that Darwin would have wanted to include, which is now in this edition. The only problem I have with it is that Ekman discusses his own research in this area in text boxes where Darwin?s words suggest such a discussion. This seems rather presumptuous, and I would have thought it would have been better to put this discussion in footnotes.
