Description

Excerpt from Evolution Ethics: And Other Essays

The discourse on Evolution and Ethics, re printed in the first half of the present volume, was delivered before the University of Oxford, as the second of the annual lectures founded by Mr. Romanes: whose name I may not write without deploring the untimely death, in the ?ower of his age, of a friend endeared to me, as to so many others, by his kindly nature; and justly valued by all his colleagues for his powers of investigation and his zeal for the advancement of knowledge. I well remember, when Mr. Romanes'' early work came into my hands, as one of the secretaries of the Royal Society, how much I rejoiced in the accession to the ranks of the little army of workers in science of a recruit so well qualified to take a high place among us.

It was at my friend''s urgent request that I agreed to undertake the lecture, should I be hon cured with an official proposal to give it, though I confess not without misgivings, if only on ao count oi the serious fatigue and hoarseness which public speaking has for some years caused me.
