"The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals" is Darwin's classic examination of behavior as can be witnessed through the outwardly visible expression of emotions. The timeless question of "nature vs. nurture" is one that has perplexed behaviorial scientists since the inception of the discipline. Is behavior a function of evolution or environment? Darwin's examination of the subject from the perspective of expression as a proxy for the visible evolution of character in man and animals makes for a detailed study on the subject. Presented here is the fully annotated and illustrated edition.

You can open to just about any page and discover yet another gem. Whether you find a bit to read by chance, or whether you like to be guided by the fascinating table of contents and index, or whether you prefer to begin at the beginning, Darwin is always interesting and accessible. In view of our troubled world, I find it helpful to remember that empathy is an essential part of human and animal nature. It seems the study of emotion must lead us toward a deeper understanding of these universal, powerful forces that energize and transform our lives.
ÒExpressionÓ is really an old friend. As a young dance therapist in the 1960s, I was impressed first by DarwinÕs ability to describe the dynamic process of expressive movement. Obviously it is the emotions that motivate and shape the way we move. I learned then that his observations were gathered over a period of 30 years. His subjects included not only all kinds of animals, but also human infants, children and adults from every walk of life and from many different cultures. He approached the study of emotional expression from the perspective of art, literature and inner experience, as well as from muscles and the nervous system. Although it was first published over 125 years ago (1872) DarwinÕs work continues to inspire and inform contemporary research in many fields.
The new edition is simply outstanding. Paul EkmanÕs editing is clearly a Òlabor of love,Ó and at the same time a thorough, original scholarly contribution. I particularly like the way he places DarwinÕs work in a cultural and social/political context. EkmanÕs commentary offers rich resources as he quietly updates, re-frames or differs, yet more than anything, confirms and extends DarwinÕs observations. It is as if Ekman and Darwin were engaged in a kind of dialogue, each learning from the other. Thereader is a privileged witness.

To understand how Darwin was thinking about Human origins, it's insufficient to just purchase and read the Descent of Man- this book is a must.
Secondly, this edition of the book has proven to be a very good one for me- the illustrations are clear and I've enjoyed the typeset. While it's possible to find a PDF of the book online, I find having this useful for showing to students.
On Kindle version, theres some problems in diagramming, so sometimes you need to pay atention to identify that is text from notes and observations.
