Excerpt

There are two fundamental biological questions: What are living creatures, statically and dynamically, intact and in all their parts?; an, How have they come to be as they are, individually and racially? In the preceding ten lectures we have been concerned with organisms as they are; we pass now to the problem of their evolution. Our general aim remains:--to state the outstanding results of a scientific study of Animate Nature, so that it may be seen whether they are conformable with other results of human experience. We do not argue from the empirical facts to any transcendental conclusion, for that is bound to be bad argument. We try to state the facts.
