This fifth edition quotes for the first time the phrase "Survival of the Fittest" , a term often attributed to Darwin but by his own admission borrowed from Herbert Spencer. "I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term Natural Selection, in order to mark its relation to man's power of selection. But the expression often used by Mr. Herbert Spencer of the Survival of the Fittest is more accurate, and is sometimes equally convenient." (Freeman 387).
