He originated the theory of uniformitarianism — a fundamental principle of geology — that explains the features of the Earth's crust by means of natural processes over geologic time.

Hutton's work established geology as a science, and as a result he is referred to as the "Father of Modern Geology"/5(5). Theory Of The Earth (), written by legendary author M.D. James Hutton is widely considered to be one of the greatest classic and historical texts of all time.
