Discussion post (min 200 words)

This week we took some time to analyze and understand Darwinian evolution/natural selection, as well as the rise of Social-Darwinism and Eugenics. Consider these questions. in relation to the videos, and reading material.

  1. What is the difference, or differences, between Darwinism and Social-Darwinism, how do Social-Darwinists apply Darwinian theory to their own theories about the world?
  2. What seems to be the ultimate point, or goal, for Social-Darwinist thinkers, like Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard?
  3. What are the connections between Social-Darwinism and Eugenics? And why is Margaret Sanger’s groundbreaking work, Family Limitation, considered part of the wider eugenics movement?
  4. Lastly, why do you believe this period of the late 1880s and into the 1930s saw the rise of such “sciences” and programs as Social-Darwinism and eugenics?
