From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany. Weikart’s book elucidates the revolutionary impact Darwinism had on ethics and morality. Weikart demonstrates that many leading Darwinian biologists and social thinkers in Germany believed that Darwinism overturned traditional Judeo-Christian and Enlightenment ethics, especially the view that human life is sacred. Many of these thinkers supported moral relativism, yet simultaneously exalted evolutionary “fitness” (especially intelligence and health) as the highest arbiter of morality.
