A first American edition account of George Mivart’s reaction to Darwinian naturalism.

 

George Mivart was a 19th-century English biologist known for his attempts to merge the beliefs of Darwinian evolution and the Catholic Church – curiously, he was condemned by everyone! Mivart held views that were contrary to other scientists, including his view on the language of animals – he states:

“Since we are unable to converse with brutes, we can but divine and infer from their gestures, motions, and the sounds they emit, what may be the nature of their highest psychical powers.”

Mivart discounted many of Darwin’s own studies including his “hasty attribution of human qualities to brutes, on account of certain superficial resemblances.” (Radick, p.69).

 

According to Cooper and Hull,

“Mivart describes primates, including humans, as being ‘unguiculate, claviculate, placental mammals, with orbits encircled by bone; three kinds of teeth, at least at one time of life; brain always with a posterior lobe and calcarine fissure…”
