    Abstract

    IN “Man's Place among the Anthropoids” Prof. W. K. Gregory, of the American Museum of Natural History, has made a further contribution to a discussion which was initiated by Prof. F. Wood Jones in a lecture given in 1918 at King's College, London, on “The Problem of Man's Ancestry”. In this lecture the belief held by most anatomists, namely, that man has sprung from, the line of anthropoid apes, was attacked and rejected. The issue which was then raised by Prof. Wood Jones really extends far beyond the limits of anatomical inquiry; it concerns those who are seeking to unravel the evolution of human culture quite as much as those who are inquiring into the evolution of man's body.
