Luck, or Cunning, as the Main Means of Organic Modification

By Samuel Butler
Free
Book Description

This is Butler's fourth book on his one-sided feud with Darwin wherein he again rejects Darwinism in favor of a neo-Lamarckian evolutionary view. While Butler was growing increasingly self-righteous and resentful over his belief that Darwin was deliberately hiding the truth about evolution, it was to be Butler's last book on the subject.
