Darwin’s Footprint
summary
Darwin’s Footprint is dealing with the impact of Darwinism in Greece, investigating how it has shaped Greece in terms of its cultural and intellectual history, and in particular its literature. The book demonstrates that in the late 19th to early 20th centuries Darwinism and associated science strongly influenced celebrated Greek literary writers and other influential intellectuals in various areas such as ‘man’s place in nature’, the naturenurture controversy, religion, and class, race and gender. In addition, the study reveals that many of these individuals were not just dealing with important issues from social, political or philosophical perspectives, as has been the general thought till now, but they were also considering alternative approaches to these issues based on Darwinian and associated biological postDarwinian ideas. These issues included the Greek race/nation, culture, language and identity; politics and gender equality. Zarimis’s book devotes considerable space to the notable novelist, journalist and play writer, Xenopoulos.
