Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to determine the manner in which British intellectual factions within the Royal Society developed depictions of societies, non-European cultures and territories in order to justify British imperialist expansion, between 1860 and 1918. The main thesis of this research is that the process of territorial expansion of British colonial imperialism was legitimized by certain sections of British scientific society that built a theoretical corpus to justify and explain British dominion over other lands, societies and cultures.
