This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history of Darwinism in Argentina. It suggests that Argentine Darwinism grew in response to the needs of nation building that characterized the second half of the nineteenth century and Argentine intellectuals attempted to integrate all civilized ideas into the country's civilizatory process. It discusses the cultural and political analogies of Charles Darwin's evolutionary thought and highlights the success of Argentine philosophical thinking in developing its own national characteristics.
