THE TIME MACHINE AND SOCIAL DARWINISM

H.G Wells was born in 1866 and we know him as one of the fathers of modern science fiction along with Jules Verne. He was born in the age of inventions and discovery. His fictional “The Time Machine” book has some ideas from both Darwin’s “Evolution” theory and Herbert Spencer’s “Social Evolution” theory according to time traveller’s journey through the future folks. This paper will analyse how the character analyses different human folks in the far future, the reason behind it, why they evolved into that form, how H.G Wells “World State theory” is connected to these ideas, a brief summary of both theories and symbolism in the work of fiction.
