OF STARS AND MEN

Man in the universe conceived by modern science -- and the implications of this predicament, provides the theme of Shapley's observations. Rabidly misanthropic, he derides all anthropocentric philosophies and schemes of existence. He modifies and humbles the achievements and significance of man, extending, glorifying and enriching the processes of nature. The scientific lore adduced by Shapley is as exciting as it is pertinent.
