Charles BONNET

La palingénésie philosophique ou Idées sur l'état passé et sur l'état futur des êtres vivants.

Chez Claude Philibert et Barthelemi Chirol, à Genève 1769, in-8 (11,5x20cm), xxvj (2) 427pp; (1) et (2) iv (2) 448pp., 2 volumes reliés.

First edition, rare; infringement is published on the same date in Amsterdam. Full glossy blond calf and marbled contemporary. Back smooth decorated. Parts of title and volume numbers of red morocco. A small loss in head volume I. Five corners bumped. Friction. Without doubt the most ambitious and the most remarkable study Bonnet which earned him the title of father of modern biology. This work of theoretical biology drawing its source in a multi-disciplinary thinking and assumption Leibniz (the immortality of the soul) claims that the Earth undergoes contemporaryic universal disasters that destroy almost all life and survivors to rise whenever a step on the ladder of evolution. Bonnet was the first to use the term evolution in a biological context. The book also foreshadows experimental psychology. It exists in every being germs that predate him and ensures the survival of the species, the thesis Bonnet announcing the theories and discoveries of genes. This is blindness in Bonnet put a stop to the experiments and urged towards philosophical reflection. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
