This little book is the result of an expressed need on the part of high school and college teachers for a more simple and compact treatment of organic evolution than has heretofore been available. Such monographic treatment the elementary textbooks, by virtue of their organization, do not supply. On the other hand, the covering of this topic adequately by supplementary reading has proved too large a task for the time available. So the design of this little book is to be supplementary to elementary biological texts; to furnish in brief and simple form a serviceable idea of modern conceptions in this great field, and of their significance in human life. In the whole history of thought nothing is more significant than the conception of evolution. When the evolution of organisms became an accepted doctrine, all fundamental ideas had to be recast in the new light. This is more than historic. It is an affair of today as well as of yesterday. The thinking of today that is most significant is thinking in terms of evolution. Intelligent interpretation of life depends upon it. Yet it is a fact that the average citizen has but the vaguest ideas of what evolution is. It is in our teaching of elementary biology in high schools that we have the best opportunity to correct this state of affairs. But it is a CS -neglected opportunity. Certain present tendencies in science teaching leave small space in the elementary courses -5 for anything which is suspected of being abstract. Unfortunately evolution is under this suspicion.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
