It argues that when the philosophical proposition of the unity of all matter and thought a single, universal substance fused with scientific empiricism and Darwinism in the mid-nineteenth century, it led to the formation of a powerful worldview. Compelling essays by leading international scholars investigate the articulation of monism in science, philosophy, and religion and its impact on range of social movements from socialism and early feminism to imperialism and eugenics. Monism: Science, Philosophy, Religion and the History of a Worldviewprovides a broad and comprehensive chronological, disciplinary and geographic map of a century of monism, while at the same time showing innovative new directions in the interdisciplinary study of the modern intersections of science, religion, philosophy and culture."@en ;
