Scientists have always collaborated on scientific investigations. Remember that humans do not really live that long and research can take enormous amounts of time and effort. indd Page 22 9/17/10 8:37 AM user-f494 /208/MHSF194/fue17003_disk1of1/0078117003/fue17003_pagefiles not used in their lifetimes but was vital to the work of future generations. Gregor Mendel, for example, spent his life conducting experiments on plants to reveal the mechanisms of inheritance. In his lifetime, his work was relatively unknown.

By 1704, Isaac Newton had published accounts of his ideas on gravity, optics, and particulate light; and approximately 200 years later, Albert Einstein began publishing his ideas about the energy source of the sun and the relationships among matter, mass, and light. In 1929, Edwin Hubble published his observations that all galaxies were moving away from each other. Today all of their proposals, plus many others, are integrated in our understanding of the motion of the earth and all other celestial bodies.

All have origin stories—myths about how the world was created. The Judeo-Christian-Islamic creation stories, in combination with ancient Greek and Roman philosophies, have greatly influenced the European natural sciences from which we derive our current ideas about evolution. The Greek and Roman Legacy An important idea in Greek and Roman philosophy was the Scalae Natura, or Great Chain of Being. This idea dates back to classical Greece and the philosopher Aristotle (~384–322 BCE) or even earlier, and until the 18th or 19th century, it represented the established order of life for most Western cultures.
