THE chilly battle IN BIOLOGY. via Carl C. Lindegren. Ann Arbor, MIich. ,
Planarian Press, Inc. , 1967. 133 pp. $6. 50.
This problem to some of the loved dogmas of genetics and evolution
is interesting interpreting. Lindegren's reviews in regards to the suppression of
views which problem the underlying assumptions of medical research
are really poignant in view of his hassle in getting this e-book published,
even although he's a great geneticist.
The first bankruptcy, "The online game of Science," and the ultimate 4 chapters,
concerning the phone thought, the foundation of existence, organic evolution, and the
living country, are proper to the ideas of any biologist. Many scientists
will be aggravated by way of Lindegren's research, yet by no means bored, and plenty of will
perhaps become aware of how good taken Lindegren's criticisms often are.
Anyone who has the growth of the Lysenko-Michurin stranglehold
upon Russian genetics, which has been lately secure, will locate a
lucid dialogue of a few of the experiments of this faculty. Interspersed in
this component to the publication are additional reflections upon the impression of enforced
dogma upon clinical development. Geneticists will enjoy the personal
biographies incorporated in "The Architects of Morganism-Mendelism," and
should take to middle Lindegren's reviews referring to cytoplasmic inheritance
and the continued problems in defining the gene.
It is unimaginable that any scientist who has been expert lately in
this kingdom can learn this publication with out changing into offended once or more or
twice. repeatedly, substitute motives of the information stated take place to the
reader. i'm confident, notwithstanding, that Lindegren's iconoclasm, good founded
in the clinical process, will greater than pay off the reader of this book.

' 1 The chief flaw in his make-up was a tearing impatience: a combination of restlessness with a furious energy which led him to produce book after book at prodigious speed. His three encyclopaedias alone- The Outline of History, The Science of Life and The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind-would be considered the life's work of any normal man. Yet he wrote more than a hundred books in addition to these.
I like to write, I am keenly in- Wells's Literary Reputation 21 terested in writing, but it is not my technique ... do what I will I fail to see how I can be other than a lax, undisciplined storyteller.

And yet how true this confession is.
