Darwin: On the Origin of Species - Summary and Analysis
Man Race Darwin
Among the family heirlooms that Charles Darwin inherited, symbolically speaking, was a china cameo depicting a black slave in chains, asking "Am I not a man and a brother? An impassioned and active opposition to slavery was at the heart of the Darwin-Wedgwood family's values. The cameo's question has long since been answered once and for all in the affirmative, but the questions about race that led on from it seemingly refuse to accept that they have been settled. Religion may have monopolised Darwinian controversy lately, but race remains a source of unease and suspicion. When Charles Darwin entered the world years ago, there was one clear and simple answer to the slave's question. All men were men and brothers, because all were descended from Adam.

It will come as a surprise to historians of science if it's shown that he was, since the great naturalist has recently been lauded as an abolitionist whose detestation of slavery is an under-acknowledged motivation for his scientific work. This is undoubtedly the case.

As Darwin wrote, he posted chapters to his daughter Henrietta for editing to ensure that damaging inferences could not be drawn, and also took advice from his wife Emma. Many of the figures were drawn by the zoological illustrator T. Wood , who had also illustrated Wallace's The Malay Archipelago
Some four years ago a reviewer said that a tentative venture of mine into the field of race relations might just as well not have been written; the subject was sociological and--he implied-- only a professional sociologist could make a valid approach to it. Hardly anyone would uphold that view today. There is now, on the other hand, a wide agreement that the historian, the psychologist, the statistician, the biologist and the geographer have contributions to make as well as the social anthropologist and the sociologist; help may also be derived from the economist, the lawyer and from experts in industrial welfare and public administration. The point is expressed by Dr. Michael Banton, himself one of the most distinguished sociologists working on race relations in Britain, as follows:. It is helpful
