Abstract

Man has always been interested in his origins. Even Greek philosophers came to some knowledge about the origins of living world that surrounds us. Evolution then developed as a science, and still today its importance continues to rise. A great scientist who has made a great contribution to the evolution, and science overall, is Charles Darwin. In 1859 his long and rich work resulted in one of the most popular books today: "The origin of species by natural selection", in which he expounded his theory of evolution. Darwin's works and thoughts are source for many books and works today. His theory is also known as Darwinism. Darwinism can be divided into active and passive Darwinism. Darwin represents the passive Darwinism, and Karl Popper is the representative of the active Darwinism. According to Karl Popper and the active Darwinism, creative force in the evolution is the activity of organisms, and according to Darwin and the passive Darwinism it is the natural selection.
