Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 26[–7] Feb 1868

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Could not believe Owen to be so demoniacal as to write the Athenæum review [of Variation]. Gardeners' Chronicle review [see 5918] is weak. Darwin's ideas on causes of variation may be as hazy as the reviewer's. Huxley's clever remark on Pangenesis. Hooker's view of Pangenesis as fundamental to development doctrines, but nothing is gained by formulation in terms of germs or gemmules. Tries to answer question on last page of Darwin's letter anent sexuality.
