I don't understand what the difference is in how does the view of history influenced by Darwinism differ from the view of history influenced by the Enlightenment idea of progress???

Darwin didn't intend his theories of evolution to apply to humans and their history. He was concerned with the physical development of plants and animals and how the strongest were the most likely to survive.

Some people have tried to apply these principles to what is called Darwinism, or that the strongest humans survive politically, socially, and economically. Most experts do not accept this as a valid assumption.

Enlightenment's ideas of progress is based more on the innate goodness and abilities of man to progress.
