Summary/Abstract: In the nineteenth century, scientists' discoveries resonated not only within the closed walls of laboratories and academies but also in literary and social space. They changed the way life and humans were presented in literature: since then, it has been possible to reflect on the origins of life, distant human ancestors, and species that will replace humans in the course of biological evolution. This book aims to help introduce the Polish reader to these unobvious links between literature and natural science in nineteenth-century France.
