Fridriech Nietzsche on darwinism
What does a philosopher's opinion on biology matter?

Just a monkey in a long line of kings.

Re: Fridriech Nietzsche on darwinism
And what does a graduated theologist Darwin's opinion on biology matter?
well first your quote does not say that he graduated as a theologist, just that it was one of the areas he studied in. His study of biology outside of a formal school is pretty well known. What connection (formal or not) to biology did Nietzsche have?

Re: Fridriech Nietzsche on darwinism
I don't see why you appreciate more biological opininion of gratuated theologist from mid 19 century more than opinion of prominent linguist and philosopher from the same period.
What does a linguist and philosopher know about biology? Darwin spent his life outside of school studying the natural world, what knowledge of biology did Neitzsche have?
also: what Dr. Adequate said.

Re: G.B.Shaw on darwinism
But G.B.Shaw opinion of darwinism and especially of Natural selection seems to be of the same sort:
And what was Shaw's background in biology?
