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.

The question is asked in ignorance, by one who does not even know what can have led him to ask it.
