The Reception of Darwinism in Argentina

(p.51) Chapter Two The Reception of Darwinism in Argentina
From Man to Ape
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines how Darwinism was received in Argentina during the 1800s. It discusses early knowledge of Charles Darwin's evolutionary views and highlights the role of Museo Público director Hermann Burmeister and the continuous presence of an active English-speaking community in Argentina in the spread of Darwinism. This chapter suggests that the best-known example of the influence of Darwinian thought among English-speaking residents of Argentina is that of William Henry Hudson.
