About this Unit
Evolutionary thinking has been one of the strongest and most pervasive influences on human thinking and behaviour in the modern era, leading in its most dangerous forms to eugenics, social engineering and theories of racial hierarchy. This unit examines various evolutionary modes of thought - focusing especially on Darwins The Origin of Species (1859) - their social and cultural impact, and challenges to their legitimacy.
