Boston & New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1902. John Fiske (1842-1901), an American historian and philosopher, popularized Darwin. He saw no conflict between evolution and religion, but in another area he was inconsistent. Although a fervent Abolutionist, he also harbored racist theories that would find fruition in eugenics theory.
