“Virtually all the well-known writers of the Enlightenment were ‘Buffonians’”

Ernst Mayer

 

The monumental work by Comte de Buffon, “Histoire Naturelle,” was fascinating 18th-century collection of articles and encyclopedia entries on material sciences, physics, chemistry, technology, as well as the history of animals. Buffon wrote the volumes with the intent of addressing all of natural history, but after realizing the grandeur of the work, it focuses only minerals, birds, and quadrupeds.

 

This second volume is a general history of animals. The contents include an entire chapter dedicated to identifying the differences between plants, minerals, and animals. From there, Buffon discusses formation of the fetus, generational differences in animal species, the studies of Leevwenhoek, and types of cells. This volume ends with the biological history and development of the human body – infancy, puberty, and description of ages.
