This chapter suggests that Lamarck advanced the theory that the history of organic evolution is based on a progressive increase of complexity as the very consequence of the cumulative continuity of the process. This conception of complexity is based on the reorganizational basis of existing systems of individuals that are constrained within their environment.

Keywords:   Lamarck, organic evolution, evolution, complexity, cumulative continuity
