SCIENCE AND MAN by Ruth Nanda -- ed. Anshen


Email this review


Second volume in Science of Culture series, of which Freedom: Its Meaning was the first volume. The editor has once again succeeded in bringing together a distinguished number of contributors, 24 in all, including such eminent writers and authorities as Huxley, Kaempffert, Malinowski, Maritain, Mumford, Jung, etc. There is a preponderance of professorial and editorial slant, too little of practical lay viewpoint for this to appeal to a general audience. In the final analysis the general trend is towards stressing the power of reason and its decisive influence on the life of humanity, and the ever-present danger of not recognizing the limitations of science. College and public library primarily.
