Excerpt from Prehistoric Man and His Story: A Sketch of the History of Mankind From the Earliest Times It would surely be a great pity if ordinary intelligent readers could no longer follow comfortably the most interesting of all sciences, and we have therefore avoided technical terms wherever it was possible, and we have tried to keep the main outline clear and consecutive. I have endeavoured, as far as possible, to avoid repeating what has already been given in full detail in books of the same nature, and preferred foreign authorities as being less accessible to the general reader. It must also be remembered that to every question discussed in the following pages, there are not merely two, but several sides. The solution is always a matter of probability and balance of evidence. I have selected that solution which seems most satisfying, and which best explains the facts as at present known.

Excerpt from Prehistoric Man: Researches Into the Origin of Civilisation in the Old and the New World But have we then no alternative between man plus the arti ficialities of civilisation, and man minus the influential Operation of moral laws which have their efficient equivalents in the instincts of all other animals; or can we not realize even in theory an intermediate normal condition? Such questions are replete with interest, whatever he the value of the answers rendered here to some Of the difficulties they suggest. The ethnologist does indeed study man from the same point of View as the mere naturalist but to do so to any good purpose, this essential difference between man and all other animals must be kept in View that in him a being appears for the first time among the multitude of animated organi zations, subject to natural laws as they are, but including within himself the power of interpreting and controlling the Operation of those laws; of accumulating and transmitting experience; and, above all, of looking in upon the workings of his own mind, and recog nising as part of his nature a system of moral government which he may obey or resist, though not with impunity. Our aim, therefore, is to isolate him from extraneous influences, and look, if possible, on man per 86; or at least where he can be shown to have attained maturity, exposed only to such influences as are the Ofl'spring of his own progress. In so far as this is possible we may hope to recover some means of testing man's innate capacity, and of determining by comparison what is common to the race.

Excerpt from Prehistoric Man, Vol. 1 of 2: Researches Into the Origin of Civilization in the Old and the New World But it is altogether different with the New World which Columbus revealed. Superficial students Of its monuments have indeed misinterpreted intellectual char acteristics pertaining to the infantile instincts common to human thought into fancied analogies with the arts of Egypt and more than one ingenious philosopher has traced out affinities with the mythology and astronomi cal science of the ancient East but the western conti nent still stands a world apart, with a peculiar people, and with languages, arts, and customs essentially its own. To whatever source the American nations may be traced, they had remained shut in for unnumbered cen turies by ocean barriers from all the influences of the historic hemisphere. Yet there the first European ex plorers found man so little dissimilar to all with which they were already familiar, that the name of Indian originated in the belief, retained by the great cosmo grapher to the last, that the American continent was no new world, but only the eastern confines of Asia.

The subject of the present volume, in essence is the hand and hand's extensions. We cannot insist too strongly that in the evolution of life the "decisive moment" arrived when a living being – who became man – adopted the erect attitude, thus freeing his hands, and when the industrious activity was inauguarted which this freedom made possible. In the use of the hand as an instrument, we have the manifestation of an important physical progress and the promise of further progress.

Prehistoric Man Researches Into The Origin Of Civilization In The Old And The New World

THE subject primarily treated of in the following pages is the man of that new hemisphere which was revealed to Europe in 1492. There through all historic centuries he had lived apart, absolutely uninfluenced by any reflex of the civilisation of the Ancient World; and yet, as it appears, pursuing a course in many respects strikingly analogous to that by means of which the civilisation of Europe originated. The recognition of this is not only of value as an aid to the realisation of the necessary conditions through which man passed in reaching the stage at which he is found at the dawn of history; but it seems to point to the significant conclusion that civilisation is the development of capacities inherent in man. The term used in the title was first employed, in 1851, in my Prehistoric Annals of Scotland, where evidence was adduced in proof of man’s presence in Britain “long anterior to the earliest indications of the Aryan nations passing into Europe.” It was purposely coined to express the whole period disclosed to us by means of archæological evidence, as distinguished from what is known through written records; and in this sense the term was speedily adopted by the Archæologists of Europe. But the subject thus defined is a comprehensive one; and in its rapid growth, distinctive subdivisions have been introduced which tend to narrow the application of the term. Nevertheless it is still a legitimate definition of man, wherever his history is recoverable solely by means of primitive arts. The first edition of Prehistoric Man, published in 1862, was followed in 1865 by another, carefully revised in accordance with later disclosures. Since then I have availed myself of further opportunities for study and research in reference both to existing races, and to the arts and monumental remains of extinct nations of the New World. Within the same period important additions have been contributed to our knowledge not only of the arts, but of the physical characteristics of primeval man in Europe. In the present edition, accordingly, much of the original work has been rewritten. Several chapters have been replaced by new matter. Others have been condensed, or recast, with considerable modifications and a new arrangement of the whole.
