THE BRIDGE OF LIFE: From Mystery to Reality

Email this review


A technical, philosophically-minded history of biology which bridges the subject from the physio-chemical aspects of the lower forms of life, to the metaphysical implications of the evolution of the intellect and consciousness in man. The author studies the make-up of the single cell, the continual regeneration and disassimilation in life, enzymes, excitation processes and modulation of nerves and muscles, the internal chemical and physiological balances and controls, multicellular organization, morphology, heredity and evolution, biological environment of the individual, and he goes on to more abstruse topics such as physical time and physiological time, atomic energy and its chemical relation to life. A book for the vitalist faction of the biology audience.
