From ancient times to the experiments of F. Redi – a period of universal belief in the possibility of spontaneous generation of the living; 1668-1862 (before the experiments of L. Pasteur) – experimental clarification of the impossibility of spontaneous generation; 1862-1922 (before A.I. Oparin’s speech) – philosophical analysis of the problem; 1922-1953 – development of scientific hypotheses about the origin of life and their experimental verification; from 1953 to the present – experimental and theoretical studies of the ways of transition from chemical evolution to biological.
