Abstract

Having been a medical student, then a physician for a short while, Pio Baroja was familiar with the nonsocial sciences of his time. He certainly found his way around the theories of Lamarck, of Linnaeus, and of Darwin, and had no qualms about making pronouncements about heredity, environment, and human behavior obeying some simple biological laws such as the survival of the fittest. But Baroja was also a moralist and chronicler of his epoch, as well as a curious spirit, so he incorporated disciplines such as history and anthropology into his cultural baggage, and certainly took from them what he could when creating his characters.
