Only in this way will he be in a position to form any opinion regarding the intellectual contest that rages round certain important philosophical problems arising out of biology, namely, the comparative psychology of man and beasts and the theory of evolution. I have already dealt with the former of these two problems in two special works, intended for general reading, viz. :I nstinkt und I ntelligenz im Tierreich (I nstinct and Intelligence in the Animal Kingdom )(third edition, Freiburg im Breisgau, 1905), and Vergleichende Studien liber dasS eelenleben derA meisen und der hoheren Tiere (C omparative Studies regarding the intelligence of ants and the higher animals )(second edition, Freiburg im Breisgau, 1900).
