Quote from Richard Lewontin

“Lamarck was simply wrong abou the way the environment influences heredity, and Darwin’s alienation of the organism from the environment was an essential first step in a correct description of the way the forces of nature act on each other. The problem is that it was only a first step, and we have become frozen there.” (Biology as Ideology 1992, 109).
