The Dark Darwinian History of Eugenics

On this episode of ID the Future, John West takes a look at the eugenics movement of the early twentieth century and how it drew direct inspiration from Darwinian biology and the writings of Charles Darwin himself. The eugenics movement was no fringe effort, but was the view of mainstream science and espoused by those at Harvard, Princeton, and the National Academy of Science.

Also see Dr. West's new book, The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society, which explores C.S. Lewis' views on eugenics and other issues.
