Louis Agassiz - Earth’s Crust with the Evolutionary History of the Species, “Comparative Physiology”, 1851.
This diagrammatic history of life, proposed by Swiss-American naturalist Louis Agassiz, is very different from Darwin’s. Agassiz, an opponent of Darwin’s theory of evolution, shows the beginning of time as the center of a circle and the present day as the perimeter. According to a divine plan, different groups of animals appear in the various “spokes” of the wheel and then go extinct. Humans enter only in the outermost layer, and at the top, as the crowning achievement of all Creation.
