Le problème de l'évolution

Nature volume 130, page 331 (03 September 1932) | Download Citation



IN this excellent work, the author covers in just over four hundred pages, all the fundamental landmarks and theories of the epic of evolution. The first part of the book is mainly devoted to a discussion of the palæontological discoveries supporting evolution, while the second part explains and criticises the various theories put forward to explain evolution. The author is not entirely satisfied with mechanism, and mentions the doctrine of emergence as offering a suggestive ground for reconciling facts and theories. Yet he does not find it wise, at the present state of our knowledge, to venture into dogmatic assertions about the final value of evolution.
