A social philosophy based on Darwin's ideas, paraphrased by "survival of the fittest."

Exact DefinitionEdit

Social Darwinism is an essentially capitalistic philosophy that implies that those people most suited to success are the ones who will achieve it.


The concept is closely tied to laissez-faire economics in the Gilded Age, and was advocated by many of the Captains of Industry. It sharply shows the rift between the rich and the poor.
