This chapter discusses Lamarck's work on the evolution of the nervous system and the sequence of events that such a system must follow in order for sensations, feelings, and thoughts to occur. It suggests that the conditions for sensations and inner feelings are electric conduction and an organized nervous system so that communication and integration of signals can happen.

Keywords:   Lamarck, nervous system, sensations, feelings, thoughts, inner feelings, electric conduction, signals
