This paper discusses Charles Darwin's "The Origin of Species" and "The Descent of Man" and Karl Marx's contrasting view presented in "The Communist Manifesto". The author points out their different views and their meanings in terms of influence upon the ideas of others and in economic thought. Related concepts, Social Darwinism; socialism/communism."
From the Paper:"Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and Karl Marx (1818-1883) ventured theories that were oppositional with regard to how a society's economic life should be organized, and as would prove true of many of their respective followers, more than a century after their works appeared. Darwin seems not to been keenly interested in the political and economic system within which he lived, as an educated Briton able to obtain much from his society, and to view it, too, in relation to other powers of his day that did not afford as much to the many."
