Example text

I intend this to mean that the gender divide, however deep it may run, is not in itself primordial. What is primordial is our human capacity to feel alienated, bewildered, and cut off from others, as if one were an anomic aberration among one’s kind. This sense of inner albinism does not afflict one gender more than another. It belongs to the distinctly human experience of A n t h r o p o s * 29 estrangement, especially during youth, when one is apt to feel as freakish as Frankenstein’s male monster, who vents his loneliness and incomprehension in words lent him by a woman.

It is with questions about the anatomy of that age difference that I propose to proceed. We who have become the awesome creature described by Sophocles’s Ode on Man—­we who, with our intelligence, have practically evolved beyond the animal kingdom—­did we become the most “advanced” species on earth by advancing beyond the adult stages reached by the ancestors in our remote phylogenetic past? Certainly many people thought so after the German biologist Ernst Haeckel first proposed his famous theory of recapitulation in the nineteenth century.

Recapitulation offered a powerful theory of human evolu‑ tion—­and in modified form is making a strong comeback to‑ day—­yet the morphological evidence worked against its main premise. In 1920 the Dutch anatomist Louis Bolk pointed to over twenty features that human adults share in common with juvenile primates and various mammalian embryos. For example, our round, bulbous cranium resembles the craniums of fetal and infant apes more than those of mature apes (see chapter notes for elaboration).
