DEMIDEC TRANSLATION KARL PEARSON ON NATIONAL LIFE FROM THE STANDPOINT OF SCIENCE These arguments appeared in Pearson’s work, National Life from the Standpoint of Science (1901)
History shows me the only way in which a high state of civilization has been produced. This method is the struggle of race with race, with the mentally and physically fitter race surviving. This struggle produces intense suffering while in progress, but the struggle has allowed the white man to reach his present stage of development. Because of this progress, the white man no longer lives in caves feeding on roots and nuts.
This progress redeems the struggle for race, despicable as it may seem. You, the audience, may hope for a time when agriculture replaced war. You may hope for a time when English, German, and American traders no longer compete for raw materials, a time when white and black men share soil. When this day comes, mankind will no longer progress.
No factor will encourage progress and evolution among mankind. No natural factor will restrict the fertility of inferior stock. Heredity will no longer be guided by natural selection and man will reach a plateau. Unless an end to fertility comes, catastrophe will rise, whether famine or pestilence. The East currently experiences this disaster. Physical selection does the work much more ruthlessly than the race struggle. Physical selection also does this process in a much more inefficient manner, as seen in China and India throughout history.
A race struggle exists just as a national struggle exists. This struggle originated out of tribal warfare. Currently, the civilized white man attempts to adapt his country to an ever-changing environment. The nation must predict where the struggle will exist. Maintaining a strong national position becomes more and more a preparatory act. White men must act with insight on coming events.
We do well to remember that the law of inheritance governs mankind. Mankind will suffer if we raise the inferiors in our society to produce children. If any social or class prejudices allow tampering with this barbaric imposition of natural selection, our nation’s character will sharply decline in a few generations.
This ‘‘scientific view of a nation’’ allows an extremely efficient internal organization for a country. The country constantly improves its populace through this race struggle. The struggle for trade-routes and the struggle for sources of raw materials is only one additional way the race struggle presents itself. I have taken the natural history view of mankind here. I do not think you can effectively fight against the tenets of this logic.
The growth of anthropology The theories of Charles Darwin also influenced the new scientific field of _______________ – This branch of science emerged in the late _____century – Anthropology studies the stages of human cultural evolution Anthropologists strive to identify _______________ cultural traits of mankind through comparatively studying cultures Archaeologists and anthropologists debated the ancestry of 19th century savages – Theories ranged from being remnants of the Europe of old to degeneration from higher level civilizations – Arguments also occurred over savages’ ability to improve
Edward Burnett Tylor Edward Burnett Tylor advanced his doctrine of _________ to attempt to answer the debate This ____________________ anthropologist advocated that contemporary savages provided Europeans a rare opportunity to view their past The liberal _____________ in Tylor acknowledged the _______traits in savage culture – This culture contrasted with a few moral defects in European society
Edward Burnett Tylor Tylor’s theory ultimately held that savage culture developed outside of the ____________ of evolution Africans especially deviated from the normal cultural evolution of humans He therefore believed that European societies and cultures would always remain _____________
European colonizers used anthropology to implement imperialism Governments often sponsored ethnographic research in the 19th century to understand “primitive culture” This application of scientific research to political control essentially continued the tradition from the Enlightenment – Captain _____________South Pacific expeditions and Mungo Park’s African voyages exemplify this scientific- political mingling The mixing of scientific and political motives branched out into its own version in the late 19th century – Europeans believed their cultural superiority stemmed from_______________ – This permanent superiority also gave them the ______________to rule the world
The Height of New Imperialism Reaching the apex Europeans transformed the lives of colonial subjects by the dawn of the 20th century – Cultural practices, economic influences, social orders, and constructed environments of subjects all originated from Europe – The construction of colonial cities and establishment of a cash crop economy altered the makeup of the colonies – Introduction of Western education and the remapping of indigenous social hierarchies constituted two more important changes The first anti-colonial _________________ movements responded to these transformations Ordinary Europeans became more aware of these transformations as well – Colonies entered the political consciousness of Europe by World War I more than ever before – The possession of empire allowed non-Western culture to trickle back to Europe
