I don’t. You are posting an excerpt from a copyrighted book as such, not
as a legal quotation for an acceptable purpose. Moreover, you have
distorted the text. For example:

The original text has correctly “Homo sapiens” (in italic; omitting
italic is acceptable in a plain text medium, but introducing wrong case
of a letter is not).

The original correctly uses an em dash there.

It’s a good book, but the start of the introduction is not its best part.
