The archaic language is a bit much it is very thoughtful article. The
behavioral variation and selection theory ties in with the article that
Bruce asked us to look at a few months ago.
Hull et al. (2001)'A general account of selection: Biology, immunology,
and behavior' Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24:3 pp 511-528
On the genetic end of things Baldwin was hampered by not knowing how
variation was actually introduced in biological systems. He seems to
repudiate 'Neo-Lamarckianism' but I was unclear on whether he was
offering a substitute.
One article from 1800's a day is about my limit so I'll have to look at
the William James piece some other time.
