A textbook which is a little masterpiece of its kind. Huxley never accepted without qualification the Darwinian principle. He thought "transmutation may take place without transition" and thereby anticipated the findings of modern research. He liberated the English anatomical school from the deductive method, and sounded the keynote of the social medicine of the future. - Garrison-Morton 338; Casey Wood p. 396.
