    Notes 
    • Captain of the "Beagle" on which Charles Darwin wrote "The Origin of the Species".

      Kayo Kimura July 11, 2002 English 101.#2 Essay

      Robert Fitzroy was the captain of the ship named Beagle, and he asked Darwin to accompany him for a long term of voyage. Darwin was a naturalist, who is known as a scientist for the discovery of the theory of evolution. The story of Darwin Sea Change or Five Years at Table is about their voyage on the ship. Darwin had some different views of the world than Robert Fitzroy. I would like to argue about the hypothesis that the captain influenced Darwin's view, particularly about politics and religion.
      First of all, they had once an argument about Tory politics. That was about slavery. "One of Brazil's largest slaveholders had assembled his captives and asked them whether they wished to be freed. Unanimously, they had responded "no. "When Darwin had the temerity to wonder what response made in the owner presence was worth." For a naturalist, Darwin had a doubt that slaves denied to be freed because of the presence of the owner. However, as an illegitimate descendant of King Charles II by his mistress Barbara Villiers, and also an ardent Tory, Fitzroy disagreed with his way of thinking about slaves. Fitzroy was affirmative for the slavery system.
