About this title


Book by Bowler, Professor Peter J.

From Library Journal:

While most anthropologists of the late 19th century accepted the idea of human evolution, the Darwinian concept of natural selection in human evolution was practically ignored. The predominant theories emphasized either a progressive emergence from ape-like ancestors (featuring early development of a large brain by Lamarckian mechanisms) or a more ancient branching of ape, man-like, and human lineages (featuring independent acquisition of human-like characters). Bowler ( The Eclipse of Darwinism ) analyzes the interplay of these and othr theories and puts them into the context of then-known fossils, cultural evolution as determined by archaeologists, and the social and philosophical climate. This book is scholarly and insightful, but the sometimes tedious style may prove forbidding to casual readers. Margery C. Coombs, Zoology Dept., Univ. of Massachusetts, Amherst
