GENERAL PRINCIPLES ON WHICH THE CLASSIFICATION
OF NATURAL OBJECTS IS FOUNDED.
THE necessity for a classification of a multitude of any objects, as a preliminary to the study of them, is too obvious to require insisting on; it might be even assumed that no knowledge could be obtained without this previous arrangement, since that knowledge is primarily grounded on a series of comparisons, made by bringing those objects before our minds into juxtaposition, which possess certain analogies of form, structure, or qualities.
The facility of making a systematic arrangement depends on the precision with which each group of objects admits of definition, or on its possessing few and unvarying characters, which do not pass into one another by insensible gradations; thus, for the purpose of illustration, if we desired to classify the forms of space or extension, which are made the objects of geometrical reasoning, our arrangement would be perfect and immutable, for form being the sole character essential to the existence of each group, variations in that form, admitting of the most rigid definition, must constitute its basis. But when the characters distinguishing the objects are numerous, and not clearly definable, as is the case with all those of the material world, it is only by repeated tentative arrangements that we can arrive at one which will fulfil the requisite conditions. There
appear to be two principal purposes to which classification is applicable;–First, to furnish an arrangement which may enable a learner to ascertain the name under which a species, new to him, is described, and to serve as an aid to his memory in recalling the information he subsequently obtains; and, Secondly, to present a general and comprehensive view of that portion of creation to which the arrangement is applied in all its various relations. We shall confine ourselves, however, to the principles as applicable to the organic world only; and if we can succeed in elucidating the subject in this, its more complicated bearing, the application of those principles, on other occasions, will be readily conceived.
To understand the difficulties which must be overcome in our endeavour to attain either or both of these ends, we must constantly bear in mind that Nature affords us no assistance towards any arrangement beyond that into species, with which her classifications begin and end. Species are the aggregates of those individuals which possess perfect identity in all the details of their organization and of the faculties derived from it; and we are furnished with an unerring test of nearly VOL.
