The Clue to the Ages

    THERE are species, varieties, and sub-varieties of human societies and human character, just as there are of structural organisms. Says the author: “The recorded histories of the centuries are as geological strata in which are imbedded the records of the origin of species of character, by which to test, and, if necessary, correct Darwin's theory. Regarding differing ecclesiastical and national types as true species and varieties of character, the question arises—Does the Evolutionary Hypothesis sufficiently account for the Origin of Species? My answer is most emphatically that species of human character have not arisen, and do not arise, according to Darwin's theory.” Having proved to his satisfaction that evolution is insufficient to explain social development, the author propounds an alternative theory which he submits to the kind consideration of an indulgent public.
