Cambridge:: Harvard University Press, 1977., 1977. 8vo. Illus., index. Cloth, dust-jacket; jacket a tad worn. Very good. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR "To Roger with the very best wishes Chip." ISBN: 0674833171 Burkhardt is professor emeritus at the University of Illinois. "In this, the first modern book-length study of Lamarck, Richard Burkhardt examines the origin and development of Lamarck's theory of organic evolution, the major theory prior to Darwin's. Though he was, in a sense, Darwin's forerunner, Lamarck was the polar opposite of Darwin in mentality, style, and scientific method. . . Burkhardt contends that, while Lamarck was often wrong, he deserves credit at least for having envisioned a new science of biologie in which taxonomy would be subordinated to the discovery of the laws of organic change."
