In this lecture we will try to solve the special problem as to what position in the genealogical tree of animals must be assigned to man. For the solving of this problem we use the same means as those by which we attained the general propositions of organic pedigrees, viz., ... an organism of the simplest kind imaginable, as a structureless, formless, minute particle of protoplasm, in a word, as a Moneron.
