Kant wrote on evolution ;"This analogy of forms, which with all their differences seem to have been produced according to a common original type, strengthens our suspicions of an actual relationship between them in their production from a common parent, through the gradual approximation of one animal-genus to another —- from those in which the principle of purposes seems to be best authenticated, i.e. from man, down to the polype,and again from this down to mosses and lichens, and finally to thelowest stage of nature noticeable by us, viz. to crude matter."
