The real objective of Mendel's paper: A response to Monaghan and Corcos [Book Review]

Biology and Philosophy 6 (4):447-451 (1991)
Abstract
Mendel's work in hybridization is ipso facto a study in inheritance. He is explicit in his interest to formulate universal generalizations, and at least in the case of the independent segregation of traits, he formulated his conclusions in the form of a law. Mendel did not discern, however, the inheritance of traits from that of the potential for traits. Choosing to study discrete non-overlapping traits, this did not hamper his efforts.
