(2) That mankind, as such, dating from the grant of conscious freedom, is in an early stage of evolution, having but recently risen from an animal ancestry; that man is unfinished, and that his present condition is a natural consequence of his immaturity. Contents: Outlook on the Universe; The Effort of Evolution; The Coming of Man; The Development of Man; The Destiny of Man; The Best of All Possible Worlds; The Love of the World; Man's Ascent; and Transcendental Man."
