(p.1) Introduction
From Man to Ape
University of Chicago Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the study of Darwinism as practiced in Argentina and the study of Argentina as shaped by Darwinism during the period from 1870 to 1920. This volume aims to demonstrate the importance of Darwinism in nineteenth-century Argentina and, by extension, elsewhere in Latin America. The first section of this volume reviews the history of the dissemination of evolutionary thought in Argentina and its reception by the intellectuals who appropriated it while the second examines some of the most salient constituent analogies of Darwinism and their effects on and transformation within Argentine scientific and social thought.

Keywords:   Darwinism, Argentina, Latin America, evolutionary thought, intellectuals, scientific thought, social thought
