Excerpt from Darwinism Stated by Darwin Himself: Characteristic Passages From the Writings of Charles Darwin
It will probably be a long while before the dispute over the theory that he advocated will cease, but there is certainly no excuse for a difference of opinion with regard to the language that he used, and the meaning he attached to it. That language and that meaning will be found in these pages. Darwinism stated by its opponents is one thing, Darwinism stated by Darwin himself will be found to be quite another thing, for, to use his own exclamation, "great is the power of steady misrepresentation!"
The order followed in the arrangement of these extracts is not that of the books, but the one naturally suggested by our plan, which is designed to conduct the reader through the vegetable up to the animal kingdom, and up from the lowest to the highest animal, man, "the wonder and glory of the universe."
The references are to the American edition of Darwin's works published by D. Appleton & Co., New York.
It is no part of our purpose to discuss the theory expounded here, but we can not refrain from joining in the general expression of admiration for its illustrious expounder. Lord Derby says, "He was one of half a dozen men of this century who will be remembered a century hence"; and yet his friends were "more impressed with the dignified simplicity of his nature than by the great work he had done."
