From Darwin to Hitler. Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany

  • Helmut Walser Smith (a1)

“Darwinism was a necessary, but not sufficient, cause for Nazi ideology.” This is the thesis of Richart Weikart's important, scholarly, controversial, but narrowly conceived book. Put more strongly, but within the parameters of Weikert's argument: No Darwin, no Hitler.
