Galton took Darwin’s philosophies and ideas and thoughts and actually put them into practice and that’s what we know today as eugenics.
Eugenics and evolution are related in that they both see what they consider to be the highest form of primate, such as the gorilla, as almost indistinguishable from what they consider to be the lowest form of human, the African and the Aborigines. Charles Darwin is very well known for writing,
The Origin of Species
in the 1800’s, this book
gave rise to evolutionary theory.
What people don’t know is that there was actually a longer original title to this book and that
On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or
Preservation of Favored Races
in the Struggle for Life
