ABSTRACT

Image of the title page for The descent of man, and selection in relation to sex / by Charles Darwin. London : John Murray, 1871. The descent of man argued that humankind descended from non-human species, as did seemingly human traits such as morality. Asked by critics to account for the presence of seemingly non-adaptive traits such as the peacock's tail, Darwin developed the idea of the competition for breeding partners-"sexual selection"-as an evolutionary force.
