requently with their various weaknesses.
Nor do I think it necessary to deal with the extravagant subordinate
hypotheses by aid of which facts are forced under the main hypothesis,
e.g., those which explain how the horse grew out of the glasgow hotels hipparion.
crudest finalists have been everywhere out-stripped by Evolutionists in
dextrous application glasgow hotels of the argument _a posse ad esse_.
Assuming SecondPart300-400 still that the facts collected and arranged by experimental
science in favour of the hypothesis are such as to demand some kind SecondPart300-400 of
Evolution-philosophy; assuming that the very imperfect
glasgow hotels serial
classification of living things according to their degree of organic
definiteness, coherence, and heterogeneity not merely represents a
variety which has always coexisted since life was possible on this
earth, but rather traces
glasgow hotels out or hints at the genetic process by which
this variety has been produced, let us see if there be any other
governing principle directing the process, glasgow hotels more intelligible than the
persistence of that mere organic life which cannot even be thought of as
distinct from those appliances and functions which it is supposed to
have glasgow hotels evolved for its own service by "natural selection."
Let us admit, what is really evident, that life is nothing distinct from
the sum of those functions which minister to the glasgow hotels preservation of life;
and that therefore it is not the same thing in a man and in a
mud-turtle. Man's superior faculties are not merely a more complicated
machinery for producing an identical effect which the mud-turtle
produces more simply and abundantly, but rather by their very play
_constitute_ an entirely different and higher kind of life. When Hume,
in his _Treatise on Human Nature_, says: "Reason is and ought to be the
slave of the passions and can never pretend to any other office than to
serve and obey them," he implies that the exercise of reason is no
constituent factor of human life, glasgow hotels but something outside it, subordinate
to it, whereas that life itself consists in glasgow hotels passion, or pleasurable
sensation, of which man, in virtue of his glasgow hotels reason and other advantages,
secures more than do his fellow-animals. This is just the conception of
life which we have seen to be incoherent on close glasgow hotels inspection; and if it
be so, then the evolutionary process is a struggle not for SecondPart300-400 bare life or
existence, but for the prevalence of the _higher kinds_ of life and
existence; and intelligence and morality are not only co-operative as
instruments in maintaining and extending human life, but are themselves
the principal elements of that complex life.
True, the mind does
minister to the body and preserve it; but still more does the body
minister to the mind; or rather, each ministers to that whole in which
the play of the mind is the principal function and the play of the body
subordinate. If, then, we hold to the verdict of our common sense, and
regard our mental life not as subordinate to our sensitive and vegetal
life, but as co-ordinate and even superior, we must (so to speak) view
it as no less "for its own sake," as no less an "end in itself" than
they are, but rather much more; we must regard evolution as making for
the life of truth and the life of righteousness even more principally
than for bare existence or animal vitality. It is now no longer mere
life that tries to assert itself, and in the glasgow hotels struggle shapes things to
what they are; but it is the very highest kind of life, that is trying
to come to the birth.
Nature inherently tends to the higher through the
lower forms of life, and these minister to the
glasgow hotels higher and receive in
return from them the means of a yet more efficacious ministry.
In this conception, every function of the organism has two glasgow hotels aspects,
under one of which it is its own end and exists for it ...
