For many years the phraseology of evolution has been current. Scientists use it because evolution has come to be the underlying idea of several modern sciences; and less serious writers find their vocabularies colored by what has now become a popular doctrine. Evolution is the fashion, and to affect evolutionary terminology is one method of lending a pseudo dignity to the trivial. All this is peculiarly marked in writings having to do with sociological subjects.
