Abstract

As an exercise in evolutionary theory, this paper will excite criticism on all sides: from experimentalists as too speculative, from theoreticians as unprofessional, and from the young as evidence of a decline in the faculties. Well, yes, but is it not one of the Rights of Man to formulate ideas, erratic or not?
