Allometric Influences on Primate Mothers and Infants

  • Gary G. Schwartz
  • Leonard A. Rosenblum


In his 1874 address before the British Association, “On the Hypothesis That Animals Are Automata,” Thomas Huxley employed a small deceit: “my intention,” he revealed at last, “is to apply the doctrine to man.” Huxley’s position was essentially Descartes’s, but with one critical emendation. Huxley’s canon of evolutionary continuity (“that great doctrine ... which forbids that any natural phenomena can come into existence suddenly or without some precedent”) was irreconcilable with Descartes’s view that animals are senseless#x2014;mere machines tht “eat without pleasure, cry out without pain, and grow without knowing.” “But,” Huxley rejoined, “it does not in the slightest degree follow that they are not sensitive and conscious automata.” We may be cerebral, the message ran, but we are cybernetic nonetheless.
