d. 3-22-1979; NYC

Evelyn Reed was the pen name of Evelyn Horwit Andreas Novack, an artist, philosopher, anthropologist and socialist who “sought to educate and inspire women with the facts about the creative and productive role females have played in history.”

Evelyn Reed's book Woman's Evolution, establishes through research that women/mothers were the creators of the social skills necessary to evolve primates to hominids, and that women, as the first artists, linguists, architects, writers and farmers, were the sex to tame fire.

Herbert Spencer
b. 4-27-1820; Derby, England
d. 12-8-1903; Brighton

Philosopher and anthropologist Herbert Spencer was a ‘polymath’, making contributions to a wide range of fields. His best known theory was Social Darwinism, or “the survival of the fittest”; he was also the inventor of the paper clip.

Spencer was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Literature before his death.

Herbert Spencer quotes ~
• “What is Science? To see the absurdity of the prejudice against it, we need only remark that Science is simply a higher development of common knowledge; and that if Science is repudiated, all knowledge must be repudiated along with it.”
• “Time: That which man is always trying to kill, but which ends in killing him.”
• “Man needed one moral constitution to fit him for his original state; he needs another to fit him for his present state; and he has been, is, and will long continue to be, in process of adaptation.”
• “Opinion is ultimately determined by the feelings, and not by the intellect.”
• “No one can be perfectly free till all are free; no one can be perfectly moral till all are moral; no one can be perfectly happy till all are happy.”
• “Architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and poetry, may truly be called the efflorescence of civilised life.”
• “Volumes might be written upon the impiety of the pious.”
• “... But this survival of the fittest, implies multiplication of the fittest.”
• “The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly, is to fill the world with fools.”
• “Every man is free to do that which he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other man.”
• “Religion under all its forms is distinguished from everything else in this, that its subject matter passes the sphere of the intellect.”
