History of Science

British anthropologist Sir James Frazer dies. Generally considered the father of modern anthropology, Frazer's most famous work was The Golden Bough (1890).

In it Frazer explored the similarities among magical and religious beliefs in cultures all around the world. James Frazer argued that all these similarities demonstrate that human beliefs proceed through three distinct stages: primitive magic, then its replacement with religion, then finally its replacement with science.
