De vi physica et imbecillitate darwiniana by F. W Bain( Book )

8 editions published between 1903 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the beginning, says Goethe, was the Act; but he is wrong: there is something prior even to the act--the Power. For nothing can begin to be, which had not first the power to be: the Power-to-be must necessarily and inevitably, always and everywhere, precede the Being, otherwise there can be no Becoming. What is impotent, cannot generate : and what is impossible, does not happen. Therefore it is, that, as Aristotle alone of all the philosophers understood. Power and Possibility are the root and core of all Nature. Now Darwin was a Lyellian of the Lyellians. This would be sufficiently obvious to any student of his writings, even if he had not expressly acknowledged the filiation in the dedication to the most popular and most attractive of his works. Darwin builds on Lyell, and they stand or fall together: an interdependence not sufficiently understood. It deserves, further, to be noticed, that few things ever gave Lyell more pleasure than Darwin's theory as to the origin of Coral Reefs. The step that Darwin took, in further extension of Lyellian principles, a step that covered him with glory, though it ought to have covered him with ridicule, was this"--Book.
