Creator of Philosophies and Poems

Hippolyte Adolphe Taine.jpg

I’m not at all sure about his use of the term ” Superior species,” but nonetheless he makes a point worth considering!

“Man may be considered as a superior species of animal that produces philosophies and poems in about the same way a silkworm produces their cocoons and bees their hives.”

–Hippolyte Adolphe Taine (French Philosopher, Critic and Historian who was a leading exponent of positivism and wrote the six-volume Origins of Contemporary France, 1828-1893)
