In On the Origins and Progress of Language (1773–9), James Burnett, Lord Monboddo, proposed that no absolute border separated humans and apes. Comparing orangutans and feral children such as Peter the Wolf Boy, Burnett suggested that orangutans were human, lacking only capacity for speech. In 1769 Georges-Louis Leclerc, 54 Fitzinger’s apes, in a 19th-century illustration. Comte de Buffon’s Histoire naturelle, générale et particulière examined relationships between apes and humans and concluded that while apes physically resembled humans and acted like them in various ways, possession of a soul distinguished humans.

4 Nakajima Kaho (1866–1939), Gibbon Reaching for the Moon, ink on paper. In his ‘Poetical Essay on the Dark Gibbon’, Taoist recluse Wu Yun (d. 778) described the gibbon as a being who communed simply with nature. 5 Chinese artists, poets and philosophers expressed compassionate attitudes towards gibbons and condemned hunting them. Chinese paintings often associate gibbons with cranes. Gibbons’ long arms and the cranes’ long necks and legs indicate longevity and both creatures are appreciated for their graceful movements.

While some of Darwin’s ideas were adapted to fit the political context, resulting in the ever-useful notion of ‘survival of the fittest’, other aspects were more troubling. Suggestions of evolutionary links with living apes (still widely misunderstood as direct descent from those apes) disturbed more self-congratulatory notions of human uniqueness, a disturbance that still affects our own time. Just as Linnaeus feared religious persecution for classifying humans as part of the natural order rather than apart from it, Darwin fretted about being seen as a radical atheist insulting human dignity.
