Publication entitled "Evolutionism and Mendelism."
In 1865, when Mendel put forward and ingeniously interpreted the results of his hybridization experiments, he was far from imagining all the amazing consequences of his discovery, particularly those which would contribute towards evolutionism and which would, to a certain extent, tend to obscure the gradualism of evolution. Not that Mendel was not familiar with Darwinism. There is indirect and direct evidence that he was familiar with it. The indirect evidence comes from the fact that in his library there were 3 German translations (1863) of the “On the origin of species” (Kriznecky, 1965).
