The present volume sets forth certain of the humanistic aspects of natural science with illustrations largely from the field of biology. The work is an outcome of the authors experience as a teacher of zoology, although much that is here contained forms no part of routine zoological instruction. The interest of college students in the broader aspects of science, as viewed by the biologist, leads him to believe that the matter presented may interest a wider audience. We often hear the statement that we live in a scientific age. But what does this mean historically, and what does it imply for the future? A gain, it is said that the present is a period of readjustment. Readjustment to what, and because of what? The present volume seeks in a modest way to answer these questions. The writer has also found an incentive in his conviction that the world has arrived at an age of science, that the necessary readjustments have not been completed and that the future belongs to the scientific frame of mind. Acknowledgments are due to many friends and associates who have consciously or unconsciously contributed to the work during the course of numerous discussions. A mong my fellow zoologists, who have read extended portions of the manuscript and made valuable suggestions, are Caswell Grave, F. B. I sely, the late W. E. Kellicott, E.G. Conklin, S. 0. Mast, and George Lefevre. I am particularly indebted toP rofessor George Twiss of theO hio State University, and toP rofessor A. H. R. Fairchild of the University of Missouri, he critical reading of preliminary drafts. But most of all. I am under obligation to my friend and colleague Professor N. M. Trenholme for his reading of earlier and later draft of certain chapters, as well as the final manuscript.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as:
