An investigation of the origin of intelligence must necessarily face the relationship between the mind and the biological organization. No speculative discussion of this relationship can lead to a tenable positive conclusion. Yet it is preferable to clarify in advance the postulates with which the investigation begins, rather than to succumb unwittingly to the influence of one of the many possible views concerning this relationship. This chapter discusses the functional invariants of intelligence and the biological organization and the functional invariants and the categories of reason.
