Even though anarchism was a marginal force in the British political map, the ideas of Kropotkin were ex- tremely important in the formation of the intellectual background of leading figures of the Fabian movement26, the Socialist League27, and the emerging ILP And, at the same time, he kept in touch with the lo- cal community of geographers It did not take a long time to take advantage from such an unusual position for an anarchist.
The Great Depression began to show its effects in Britain. Social unrest was especially noticeable in the second half of the s.

More fundamentally, the intention was to curtail the naive and dangerous expectations of socialism, a movement he described as political rousseaunism. Thus, the sequence of articles he wrote about the relation between Ethics and Evolution, culminated by the Romanes Lecture36 in the beginning of the s, had an underlying political script It cannot be the foundation of our ethic concep- tions.
In fact, the moral being, the civilised man, must oppose these blind, amoral forces. Now, Huxley established a contrast between two metaphors: Nature is the jungle, civilisation the garden. This is apparently consistent with a new kind of reformist liberalism. However, this liberalism was rather cautious. Nature reappeared to halt socialist pretensions. The persistence of primordial aggressive instincts and the haunting spectre of Malthusian popu- lation laws permanently threaten our existence.
Both the necessity of the ac- tive role of the State, and the acceptance of the inevitability of certain levels of inequality, were justified Articles from Freedom , London, ; pp.
In fact, it can be proved that Kropotkin was beginning to work in this direction even before Huxley made public his posi- tion in this issue.
The motives were clear. The weakness of the anarchist movement was paralleled by the increasing number of acts of terrorism com- mitted by libertarian individuals.
Kropotkin was convinced that a certain de- gree of violence would be needed to achieve revolutionary goals. But he op- posed consistently any act of gratuitous violence in the French anarchist press Moreover, ethics was important from the theoretical point of view. Anarchy entails the suppression of any form of legal, political, and religious coercion. Thus, the kropotkinian basic argument that ethics was based on the primordial social instincts inher- ited from our animal ancestors had obvious political overtones.
Moral habits, the real foundations of social life, are installed in the human brain.
They actu- ally corrupt the underlying sympathetic dispositions of the human kind. Desmond , p. From to , he published a series of articles on this issue in The Nineteenth Century43, assembled as a book in It was his famous Mu- tual Aid.
A Factor of Evolution. He launched a generalised attack against what he considered the vast majority of Darwinists.
The basics of the argument are well known. They only saw the struggle for life in the sense of mutual extermination within the species In fact, this kind of metaphoric struggle is much more important in the global economy of nature than the inner struggle within the species Now, in this prevalent strug- gle sustained by the vast majority of species against the hostile environment, the fittest are those groups developing in the highest degree the habits of socia- bility oriented to mutual aid or solidarity within the species Moreover, socia- bility creates the conditions for the progress of the highest faculties morality and intelligence.
Thus, the conclusion is that solidarity is not only prevalent in the economy of nature, but the actual progressive mechanism of evolution Some of the most bril- liant British scientists Wallace and Spencer among others signed a petition to free Kropotkin from French prisons. LXVI, ; p. There were good reasons to do so.
New enemies threatened the con- struction of a minimum consensus about the role of morality within the anar- chist movement. The burgeoning influence of Nietzsche among the anarchist ranks was part of this story. Kropotkin, in a letter, made clear his oppo- sition to the advance of Nietzschianism in the libertarian movement Nietzsche was no more than a bourgeois individualist52On the other hand; philosophical scepticism about the achieve- ments and the social role of Science53 was in vogue all around Europe.
Thus, both Science and solidarity as the basis of ethics and communitarian anar- chism were under attack. In and , Kropotkin responded using his favourite instrument, The Nineteenth Century The articles were not in- tended solely to conjure the dangers.
They were conceived as the introductory part of a specific work on Ethics. In these articles he analysed the influence that sociability and mutual aid had represented in the life and ethical concep- tions of primitive groups of humans. He thought that he was following the line indicated by Darwin himself, when he tried to explain in the Descent the origin of moral consciousness in human kind invoking the general pre- eminence among animals of social over individual instincts However, Kropotkin was promoting his own brand of socio-biology in the mids, years before those threats were apparent.
The Russian Revo- lution, his worsening health56, and the exhausting amount of work needed to complete his book on the French Revolution, delayed this project. He resumed the work in Of course, this question was not new for Kropotkin. In the early s, the Russian anarchist discussed in the pages of the scientific section of The Nineteenth Century58, the merits of the different theories of heredity, and the relative powers of natural selection and the heredity of acquired characters To have a deeper understanding of the underlying reasons, we have to take into account that Kropotkin had not developed a consistent theory on how mutual aid causes actual evolutionary change before the s.
His book Mutual Aid contains a long anti- Malthu- sian argument trying to demonstrate that mutual aid is much more important in progressive development than the inner struggle within species.
But it says very little about how mutual aid actually produces this sort of progressive development. Kropotkin was acutely aware of this difficulty He went a step further and made public his own ideas in a series of articles published during the s.
Natural selection was under the com- bined attack of different alternative theories and research programmes like Mendelism, Orthogenesis and Neo-Lamarckism. Now, Kropotkin was not completely alone when he had to deal with this complexity.

He received the critical advice and support of Marie Goldsmith, a brilliant Russian student of Biology63, disciple of the French Neolamarckian Yves Delage Her help was instrumental. Kropotkin was an amateur naturalist of the old school, a com- plete stranger in the field of experimental Biology Difficult question.
But the real target was pretty obvious.
Following the explicit argument of the anarchist prince, mutual aid could not be recognised as the underlying principle of human ethics be- cause biologists resist considering it as the most visible feature of animal life. They did not accept solidarity as a prevalent fact of the Economy of Nature because it contradicts the Malthusian struggle for life, something they see as ———— 61The amount of work needed to complete this work caused extraordinary physical and intellectual exhaustion: NETTLAU , p.
Goldsmith was a biologist who completed her Ph.
For the living things out of doors, they care little. Such work to them is all vague. Even though they are reminded that Darwin in the Descent stressed the importance of sociability and sympathetic feelings in the struggle for life and for the preservation of the species, they cannot conciliate this claim with the part assigned by Darwin and Wallace to the struggle between individuals in their theory of natural selection. Kropotkin assumed that this contradiction does exist.
Malthusian- ism and prevalence of association contradict each other Kropotkin tried to respond to this objection by taking a definite position in the debate in the relation between heredity and Evolution.
Kropotkin, as a significant part of the Neo-Lamarckian, postulated a peculiar synthesis be- tween Lamarckianism and Darwinism68, in which natural selection plays a secondary role, being the direct action of the environment and the heredity of acquired characters the real evolutionary mechanisms. He tried to demon- strate, fundamentally, that natural selection of accidentally produced varia- tions could not be responsible for the process of progressive evolution. Alter- natively, he showed that the direct action of the environment69 was more consistent with this sort of progressive process.
In addition, he tried to dem- onstrate that the heredity of acquired characters was not a theoretical impos- sibility but a fact with increasing experimental evidence in favour.
In this move to Neolamarckian waters, one thing is noticeable: he never dropped the banner of Darwinism The anarchist prince tried to show how his synthesis between natural selection and the heredity of acquired character- istics was simply a step further in the line indicated by Darwin himself.

Darwin did not give a more important role to the Lamarckian factors, because there were no proof in favour of the direct action of the environment as a mechanism capable of pro- ducing stable varieties and species.
More decisively, he was opposed to the Lamarckian ideas of the inherent power of the organisms to progress and the role assigned to the will of animals in their adaptive processes This was paralleled by a shift in the role assigned to natural selection. The mere selection of variations produced independently of the adaptive necessities of the organ- ism was not enough to explain evolutionary change.
Adaptations prepared by the direct action of the environment became the new raw material for natural selection.
Now, variation is not random anymore It then moves to primitive man. Whenever the people would have a chance to go back to assisting each other in mutual aid, they apyo even if it had to be done in secret or with the threat of law against them.

En Francia no hay diez productores directos por cada treinta habitantes. En realidad, son de seis a siete millones de trabajadores quienes crean las riquezas enviadas a las cuatro partes del mundo. No hablemos de esos toneles de ostras arrojados al mar para impedir que la ostra llegue a ser un alimento de la plebe y deje de ser una golosina propia de la gente acomodada; no hablemos de los mil y mil objetos de lujo tratados de igual manera que las ostras.
Millares de tejedores no pueden manejar los telares, al paso que sus mujeres y sus hijos no tienen sino harapos para cubrirse y las tres cuartas partes de los europeos no cuentan con vestido que merezca tal nombre. Mas para que el bienestar llegue a ser una realidad, es preciso que el inmenso capital deje de ser considerado como una propiedad privada, del que el acaparador disponga a su antojo.
Recordemos la Comuna. Por todas partes mucha buena voluntad, un vivo deseo de asegurar la victoria. Los otros se meten entre papelotes con la mejor voluntad de comprender alguna cosa. Posibilistas, colectivistas, radicales, jacobinos, blanquistas, forzosamente reunidos, pierden el tiempo en discutir.
Durante ese tiempo, el pueblo sufre. El trabajador ya no cobra ni aun el mezquino salario de antes. El precio de los alimentos sube. El pueblo sufre. Proclaman su derecho a todas las riquezas, y es menester que conozcan lo que son los grandes goces del arte y de la ciencia, harto tiempo acaparados por los burgueses.
Y cuando afirman su derecho al bienestar, declaran su derecho a decidir ellos mismos lo que ha de ser su bienestar, lo que es preciso para asegurarlo y lo que en lo sucesivo debe abandonarse como desprovisto de valor.The acquaintance of Spencer with Kropotkin also may have resulted in some exchange of ideas between the two.

But the real target was pretty obvious. Nonetheless, during his university days RadcliffeBrown apparently took a rather strong if fleeting interest in anarchist thought. Yet Kropotkin's ideas were among the most salient influences on social anthropology during its formative years and defined an approach to enquiry that persists to the present.
