Robert Louis Stevenson's "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde" first appeared in 1886. Readers at the time commented on 3 major influences at work on the text: Darwinism, the Bible, and Platonism. This book examines a range of texts from earlier literature involving apes or ape-like creatures, thereby revealing a tradition which explores & questions the origins of mankind - theological, philosophical, & scientific - in an attempt to account for the presence of our lower impulses.
