Let us attempt in thirty minutes to trace the million-year history of man's blundering yet ever more successful efforts to learn to think, to solve problems, to cooperate, construct and create. If we can trace the important steps by which the man-animal has become man and has developed thought patterns for the discovery of the truth he needs to guide his action and to solve his problems, we shall in so doing indicate the essential nature of a phylogenetic psycho-logic of importance for a fundamental science of education, i.e. a science of the evolution of human intelligence.
