Topic: IHUM 202 – Reading Response: Origin of Species

The title of chapter three of Darwin’s The Origin of Species is “Struggle for Existence.” This chapter importantly characterizes all biological life as in competition with other forms of life for its very survival. Such an inherently competitive relationship, by the way, was adopted by some 19th century sociologists as a model for envisioning human society which came to be known as “social Darwinism.” Discuss what Darwin means by the “struggle for existence.” Be specific as to how Darwin describes this struggle. In approximately 250 words (one page), make a clear, focused argument (thesis statement) that tackles one or more of these questions clearly and directly but also substantively. For our grading purposes, and so that you yourself know your argument, please underline your thesis statement in the final draft you submit.
