Publicidade

Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz foi um zoólogo, geólogo suíço, notório por sua Expedição Thayer. Agassiz foi um dos promotores e principais defensores do racismo científico e do criacionismo no século XIX. Por causa disso, as homenagens a ele estão sendo anacronicamente questionadas no presente ignorando as divergências tempóreas e de valores comuns em sua época e valores de seus opositores ideológicos que sequer são valores universais ou gerais visto que não são os únicos existentes.
