An attempt is made to expand on the relevant context for understanding Charles Darwin's works: (1) the impact of ideas from the Eighteenth century; (2) the social milieu during Darwin's lifetime; (3) Darwin's interest for variation and inheritance; and (4) principles of classification as compared to approaches in the second half of the Twentieth century.
