And as natural selection works solely by and for the good of each being, all corporeal and mental endowments will tend to progress towards perfection.
220 페이지 - Bischoff, who is a hostile witness, admits that every chief fissure and fold in the brain of man has its analogy in that of the Orang; but he adds that at no period of development do their brains perfectly agree ; nor could this be expected, for otherwise their mental powers would have been the same.
