Summary/Abstract: In this paper we present the historical analysis of influences on Charles Darwin and his conceptualization of the ideas concerning evolution by means of natural selection, through the authors that were not (professional) naturalists, but philosophers, social scientists and other popular authors. Situation concerning sciences, together with the intellectual and social context in the period when Darwin lived and created are presented as well. In the end, we present and explain the pseudohistorical episode of contact between Charles Darwin and Karl Marx, that used to be a subject of many speculations.
