Discussion question

Many topics arise from reading Jack London's Before Adam. Please begin your discussion with one or more of the following prompts (do not try to address them all): • London suggests that humanity carries with it memories from the primordial past (racial memory). What do you think of this idea? • None of the Folk possess language. What sorts of problems emerge for them due to this lack? • Big-Tooth suggests that the Folk have no real sense of time and/or the future. Discuss the implications of this fact. • What is an "atavism"? Why is this important? • How are the actions of the main characters related to their relationships with their parents? What would Freud say? • Discuss the divisions of Tree, Cave, and Fire people. What might it mean to live contemporaneously with other human sub-species? • A good portion of the novel deals with innovation and how it leads to evolutionary changes. Discuss one or two moments when innovation appears. Before Adam, part 2 Day 2. Many topics arise from reading Jack London's Before Adam. Please begin your discussion with one or more of the following prompts (do not try to address them all): • In Chapter VII, Big-Tooth says, "Lop-Ear was plainly in a funk, and yet his conduct in remaining by me, in spite of his fear, I take as a foreshadowing of the altruism and comradeship that have helped make man the mightiest of the animals." Discuss this quality in the pre-humans; what might such a quality mean in the midst of the animal kingdom? • In Chapter XI, Big-Tooth talks about his past self's inability to reflect on things. Discuss. • What does it mean to be related to early hominids? What does it mean to be related to even older life forms (say, worms)? • Explore the implications of the Hee Hee Council. • In Chapter XIV, London implies that many religious ideas have their root in primal experience. Discuss this notion. • Why is collective thought and action such an important lack among the Folk? What might gaining such an ability have changed for them? • The Swift-One is very similar to Ayla (from Clan of the Cave Bear) and Ika (from Quest for Fire). Explore why so many pre-human tales might focus on such a character.
