La Force et le Droit Le Prétendu Droit Biologique


PROF. R. ANTHONY, well known for his fine studies of arboricolous animals, and for his insistence on the evolutionary importance of an arboreal apprenticeship in the case of man's ancestors, has made an elaborate criticism of the view that there is biological justification for the “Might is Right” doctrine. The argument against which the author advances somewhat heavy guns has been previously shattered by Dr. Chalmers Mitchell and others, but it is interesting to see it crumble under French fire.
