  Throughout history, books have disseminated the ideas and discoveries of the world’s most influential thinkers.

  纵观汗青,册本不断都施展着为天下上最有影响力的思想家们流传巨大观念和庞大发明的感化。

  Now a new survey has shown that half of the top 10 ‘most valuable’ books – as voted by the British public – were written by eminent scientists.

  近来一项观察显现,在由英国公众投票选出的天下上最有代价的10本书中,有一半出自天下知名的科学家之手。

  The poll by The Folio Society set out to select the most valuable works to the human race and authors of those picked include Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, as well as George Orwell and Harper Lee.

  这项观察由弗里欧书社建议的,目标是选出天下上对人类代价最大的册本。进入前10名的册本作者包孕查尔斯·达尔文、阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦、斯蒂芬·霍金,以及乔治·奥威尔和哈珀·李。

  Two of the top three titles were written by scientists. Darwin’s The Origin of Species gained 35 per cent, while Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time gained 17 per cent.

  前3位中的2名都是科学家的著作。达尔文的《物种劈头》取得35%的投票排在第2位,霍金的《时候简史》取得17%的投票排在第3位。

  But the Bible was voted the most valuable text overall with 37 per cent of the votes.

  风趣的是,在英国南部有37%的人投票给了达尔文的具有开创性的巨著《物种劈头》,而英国北部则有41%的人挑选了《圣经》。

  The study, conducted by YouGov for the publisher, asked over 2,000 members of the British public which three books from a list of 30 they considered to be the most valuable.

  观察由民治观察公司构造,包孕了2000多名的英国公众,触及到30本被认为最有代价的册本。

  The measure for selection was not by popularity or by the enjoyment experienced in reading the book.

  观察请求公众挑选册本的尺度并不是依照盛行水平或是浏览时体验到的高兴水平。

  Participants were asked to rate the influence and significance their selected books have had on the modern world.

  而是请求民主依照册本对当代社会的影响力和意义来投票。

  别的詹姆斯·杜威·沃森的报告发明DNA构造历程的自传著作《双螺旋》也入选,排在第10名。
