The Philosophy of Zoology Before Darwin

This long-overlooked survey of the improvement of evolutionary idea is through some distance the main thorough and balanced account of its type. in contrast to many of the fresh Anglo-centric literature that has a tendency to concentration virtually completely on Darwin and normal choice, it follows the paintings of naturalists of many nationalities who used paleontology, comparative anatomy, and embryology on the way to determine a linear continuity of evolving existence notwithstanding the lengthy span of geological time.

It is therefore but natural that the whole glorious period extending from the reign of Seqenen-Ra and Aahmose onwards should have been presented to the young prince as a subject of which he was to be particularly proud. The kings of the Twelfth Dynasty were certainly great ones; and so were, long before them, the famous Pyramid builders of the Fourth and Fifth Dynasties. But they already belonged to what was then antiquity. There can be also no doubt that the prince’s preceptors thoroughly insisted upon the protection which Amon, the patron god of Thebes and of the Dynasty, had bestowed so lavishly upon all his forefathers.

And she possibly felt that there was truth in his childish remarks, and began to look up to him as to somebody very wise--wiser even, perhaps, than the grown-up people. com 38 A SON OF GOD: THE LIFE AND PHILOSOPHY OF AKHNATON, KING OF EGYPT 39 ∆∆ We have tried to emphasise that, before becoming the Founder of the Religion of the Disk, Akhnaton was once a child with many of the weaknesses natural to his age, but, at the same time, a child in whom the first sparks of genius must often have burst forth; a child whose coming greatness must have appeared, at times, undoubtable.

But that is all. So much so that Sir E. Wallis Budge,2 one of the authors who stresses the most the similarity of Aton and Surya, backs his argument with quotations from the Rig-Veda, not from any Mitannian text. The argument, as a result, loses much of its weight. For the idea two different nations have of the same deity is not necessarily the same. And whether the Mitannians borrowed their Surya and their Mithra from India, or whether both they and the Aryans of India, borrowed them from a common source, still it remains to be proved that Surya or Mithra represented, to the Mitannian mind, the same religious conception as that expressed in the Rig-Veda.
