Notes

Abstract: During his expeditions through the archipelagos in the Cape Horn region, Charles Darwin was
surprised by the presence of humans in Cape Horn. His observations on the landscapes, the fauna, and the life habits of the Fuegian people led him to question Victorian concepts, and stimulated his initial
thoughts about the theory of evolution, including the human species. The evolutionary thought of Darwin
on the human species began to take shape in Cape Horn. In this paper, I examine how in the course
of his life Darwin transformed his initial judgments about the Fuegian people, and how this change of
judgment is associated with the maturation of his concepts to forge the theory of human evolution. I
also examine his early reflections on an ecological-contextual concept of good living, and the ethical
implications that derive from his theory of human evolution. From the identification of these concepts,
I analyze the implications for a scientific thought and for an environmental ethics that may contribute to
address some of the ultimate causes of the current global socio-environmental crisis. In the context of this
special issue of Magallania, this analysis offers a theoretical explanation of the name of the international
course in Field Environmental Philosophy, which is also called “Tracing Darwin’s Path in Cape Horn,”
offered annually since 2005 by the University of Magallanes and the University of North Texas University
in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve.

Resumen: Durante sus expediciones por los archipiélagos en la región del Cabo de Hornos, Darwin se sorprendió con presencia humana en Cabo de Hornos. Sus observaciones sobre los paisajes, la fauna y los hábitos de vida de los pueblos originarios fueguinos, lo llevaron a cuestionarse y estimularon sus pensamientos iniciales sobre la teoría de la evolución de las especies, incluida la especie humana. El pensamiento evolutivo de Darwin sobre la especie humana comenzó a gestarse en Cabo de Hornos. En este trabajo se examina cómo, en el curso de su vida, Darwin transformó su juicio inicial sobre los pueblos fueguinos y cómo este cambio de juicio está asociado a la maduración de sus conceptos para plantear la teoría de la evolución humana, para esbozar reflexiones sobre un concepto ecológico-contextual sobre el concepto del buen vivir y plantear implicaciones éticas que derivan de su teoría de la evolución humana. A partir de la identificación de estos conceptos, se analiza las implicancias para un pensamiento científico y para una ética ambiental que contribuyan a tratar algunas de las causas últimas de la actual crisis socio-ambiental global. En el contexto de este número especial de Magallania, este análisis explica los fundamentos del nombre del curso internacional de Filosofía Ambiental de Campo, llamado también Tracing Darwin’s Path in Cape Horn (“Tras los pasos de Darwin en Cabo de Hornos”) que desde el año 2005 ofrecen anualmente la Universidad de Magallanes y la Universidad North Texas en la Reserva de la Biosfera Cabo de Hornos.
