Abstract“THE UNIQUENESS OF MAN” is a book full of good reading, very diversified and occasionally very provocative, like the mind of its author. Julian Huxley is, among other things, the natural successor to Ray Lankester, the ripe and abundant author of “Science from an Easy Chair”. These papers vary in quality from the admirable essay which gives the book its title to a cheery little review of “Who's Who”, which lines up with its betters as “The Analysis of Fame”. Such papers as “Climate and Human History”, “The Origin of Species”, “The Concept of Race”, and “Mice and Men”, are exactly what the man of intelligence, mainly preoccupied with other work, needs to keep him up to date with his biological ideas. The concluding three papers are ‘religious’ and very earnest in tone.The Uniqueness of Man
