Jean-Baptiste Lamarck

It is not the organs-that is, the character and form of the animal's bodily parts-that have given rise to its habits and particular structures. It is the habits and manner of life and the conditions in which its ancestors lived that have in the course of time fashioned its bodily form, its organs and qualities.More Jean-Baptiste Lamarck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Life, in a body whose order and state of affairs can make it manifest, is assuredly, as I have said, a real power that gives rise to numerous phenomena. This power has, however, neither goal nor intention. It can do only what it does; it is only a set of acting causes, not a particular being. I was the first to establish this truth at a time when life was still thought to be a principle, an archeia, a being of some sort.More Jean-Baptiste Lamarck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The form follows the function.More Jean-Baptiste Lamarck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
