Darwin, C. R. to Max Müller, Friedrich

3 July 1873

    Summary Add

  • +

    Thanks FMM for his "Lectures [on Mr Darwin's philosophy of language", Fraser's Mag. n.s. 7 (1873): 525–41, 659–78].

  • +

    CD is not worthy to be FMM's adversary as he knows very little about language and, being fully convinced man is descended from some lower animal, he is forced to believe a priori that language has developed from inarticulate cries.
