La Cause Première d'après les Données Expérimentales

    Article metrics


    THIS volume is the third and last of a trilogy having for their object the demonstration of the unity of substance by means of established facts, à priori argument being excluded. In the first volume the unity of the laws of matter and energy throughout the universe was expounded; the second volume dealt with the physical, physiological, embryological, and pathological facts concerning life and mind; the present volume aims at explaining the relations between various forms of organic life, the order of appearance of animals and plants upon the earth, and evolution problems generally. Leaving the metaphysical side of the book out of consideration, the book contains a certain amount of readable information and criticism.
