Best remembered today as the author of the novels Erewhon and The Way of All Flesh, Butler argues here that much of inheritance was based on habit making a feature ingrained, to the extent that it could pass between generations; but he was also a firm opponent of natural selection.About the Author:
Samuel Butler (1835-1902) is best known for his utopian satire Erewhon, his posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh, and his translations of Homer. His family background made a career in the Church inevitable, but, while serving a low-income parish in London, he began to question his faith. He lived in New Zealand for five years, and later in life spent time in Italy.
