ABSTRACT
This paper suggests some reflections about Darwin’s work main antecedents and consequences, from de perspective of its impact on society’s world view. It developes how darwinist tought meant, in the biological knowledge area, the course from myth to logos, from a timeless biological philosophy to the integration of life in geological and cosmologic time, and from determinism characteristic in classic newtonian mechanics to indeterminism typical in quantum-evolutionist paradigm.
