LOGIC (MS 339-1009)
The manuscript of 5 pp. is concerned with speculation on the possibility that Darwin was influenced by Malthus and the political economists. The manuscript of 10 pp. is concerned with the three modes of evolution: Darwinian Lamarckian, and that mode by which "the mechanical effects of external causes, which go to break up habits, especially habits of heredity,... make forms vary, in determinate ways." Also: spontaneity and law, with law the product of evolution; matter as mind under almost complete domination of habit; synechism and questions concerning religion, morality, and telepathy.
