Carl Linnaeus (1736 hits)

He wasn't the father of modern anthropology. He was an ignorant bigot.

I Normally do NOT respond to Human bloggers with no Picture, no Homo Sapien recognizable name

BUT I like the SUBJECT and ONE can NEVER READ too much.

I do Pray that you are NOT one of Linnaeus’ classifications of "Homo ferus" (wild men) ;

"Homo monstrosus" (monsters)....WOKE, StarWars Pilots OR bigFOOT.


The Enlightenment’s influence in science is Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus’ system of biological

classifications in Systemae Naturae, published in 1735.

Linnaean taxonomy is the system of scientific classification of plants and animals now widely used

in the biological sciences.

He formalized the distinction among the continental populations of the world and his work helped

characterize the concept of race.

In the tenth edition of Systemae Naturae, which was published in 1758,

Linnaeus proposed four subcategories of Homo sapiens: Americanus; Asiaticus; Africanus; and Europeanus.

........Europeans acquired their information about Africans and Indians in North America,

not from direct experience with these populations,

but rather primarily from those involved in the slave trade, missionaries or Americans like

Thomas Jefferson, who wrote about Africans and slavery.

If anything, Europeans were ethnocentric and naïve in their descriptions.

This is especially true in Linnaeus’ classifications of "Homo ferus" (wild men) and "Homo monstrosus" (monsters).
