Quotes | By

The following are quotes by Herrick:

“When the living body is viewed as a continuously evolving system which never reacts identically to repeated exposure to apparently identical conditions. The act of response alters subsequent responsiveness. This alteration is neither random nor lawless. Creativity is exhibited in some measure by every mechanism. Human freedom of ‘choice’ is not uncaused action. The cause is intrinsic to the situation. The action is not predetermined by an extrinsic causal agent. It is determined at the moment of its exercise.”
— Judson Herrick (1956), The Evolution of Human Nature (pgs. 213, 217) [3]
