On the genesis of species by St. George Jackson Mivart( Book )

64 editions published between 1871 and 2017 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

St George Jackson Mivart was an eminent biologist, who was at first an advocate for natural selection and later a passionate opponent. In this beautifully illustrated 1871 text, Mivart raised objections to natural selection as a means for evolution. These included problems in explaining: 'incipient stages' of complex structures (e.g. the mammalian eye); the existence of similar structures of divergent origin; dramatic and rapid changes in form; the absence of transitional forms from the fossil record; and issues in geological distribution. Citing the giraffe's neck, the rattle of the snake and the whale's baleen, Mivart argued for the necessity of an innate power underlying all organic life. Mivart's book did not seriously undermine the concept of natural selection - Darwin and Huxley soon countered his 'formidable array' of arguments - but it helped move the debate forward. Sadly, it also led to a rift between Mivart and Darwin

The origin of human reason, being an examination of recent hypotheses concerning it by St. George Jackson Mivart( Book )

12 editions published between 1889 and 1987 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The question of evolution by the agency of natural selection has now been debated for one whole generation. The result of the battle, so far, has been to concentrate almost the entire interest of the struggle upon the question whether or not the mind of man can have been evolved from the psychical faculties of the lower animals. We have not hesitated to declare, again and again, that such an evolution is necessarily impossible; but our critics and opponents, from Professor Huxley downwards, have evaded, rather than combated, the arguments whereby we supported our position. This book proposes to detail the origin of human reasoning by examining recent hypotheses concerning it." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
