Theory of evolution spelled out by Darwin
On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection
"In the distant future I see open fields for far more important researches. Psychology will be based on a new foundation, that of the necessary acquirement of each mental power and capacity by gradation. Light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history."
Darwin predicts the dawn of biology, genetics, paleoanthropology and more.
