Reseña del editor
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

Butler quotes extensively from Buffon, Erasmus Darwin (Charles Darwin's grandfather) and Lamarck. Butler departs from Charles Darwin in believing that organisms are designed. But where is the designer? Butler's answer is that the organism's designer is itself, or rather its complete ancestry. These days we could express this by saying that its designer is its genome, but in those pre-genetics days, all they could say was "heredity". Butler follows Lamarck, who made variation directed, and the result of perceived need; at what level of consciousness is not at all discussed.
The book ends with two curious appendices. The first quotes adverse responses to the first edition. The second hopes that the Roman Catholic Church - to which Butler does not belong - might evolve into some form which would eventually unite the whole of mankind.
