46. D. G. Brinton, “The Beginning of Man and the Age of the Race,” Forum (December 1893): 452-58.

Rejection of Darwin’s theory of evolution, which is monogenetic, in favor of a polygenetic theory of the origins of human beings (i.e., that human beings were created as separate races). The author concludes that “man” was created within the past 50,000 years and “that, speaking from present knowledge, we must say we know of man nowhere earlier than within the area of England, France, and the Iberian peninsula.”
