On the Origin of Species, Or, The Causes of the Phenomena of Organic Nature: A Course of Six Lectures to Working Men
D. Appleton, 1873 - 150페이지
"Prefixed to the English edition, is the following note from Professor Huxley: "Mr. J. Aldous Mays, who is taking shorthand notes of my 'Lectures to Working Men, ' has asked me to allow him, on his own account, to print those notes for the use of my audience. I willingly accede to this request, on the understanding that a notice is prefixed to the effect that I have no leisure to revise the Lectures, or to make alterations in them, beyond the correction of any important error in a matter of fact." The reader will not regret that the Lectures appear in this form. Taken from the lips of the distinguished naturalist, as he addressed an audience of Working Men, they have a clearness, a directness, and a simplicity which belonged to the circumstances of their delivery. In this respect, the following Lectures are incomparable. Dealing with the most abstruse and fundamental questions of mind and organization, these subjects are nevertheless presented in so lucid and attractive a manner as to impress vividly the commonest imagination"--Preface.
