First of six lectures by Julian Huxley , F.R.S.
In his first lecture Dr. Huxley maintains that all reality is parr of a single process of evolution and asks how one can study processes of this sort scientifically. He describes the three phases of evolution: the inorganic, the biological, and the human. A? Dt. Huxley will be primarily concerned in later lectures with the biological phase, tonight he analyses in some detail the phenomena it presents for s:udy. Evolutionary progress, he contends, is a fact; he describes some of the evidence that supports this claim, and indicates how the course of this progress can be scientifically formulated.
