Excerpt from Mental Evolution in Man: Origin of Human Faculty

First, let us consider the question on purely a przorz grounds. In accordance with our original hypothesis - upon which all naturalists Of any standing are nowadays agreed the process Of organic and Of mental evolution has been continuous throughout the whole region Of life and Of mind, with the one exception Of the mind Of man. On grounds Of analogy, therefore, we should deem it antecedently improbable that the process Of evolution, elsewhere SO uniform and ubiquitous, should have been interrupted at its terminal phase. And looking to the very large extent Of this analogy, the antecedent presumption which it raises is so considerable, that in my Opinion it could only be counterbalanced by some very cogent and unmistakable facts, Showing a difference between animal and human psychology so distinctive as to render it in the nature Of the case Virtually impossible that the one could ever have graduated into the other. This I posit as the first consideration.
