Description

Galatea, or the Future of Darwinism

W Russell Brain

Originally published in 1927

"A brilliant exposition…of the evolutionary hypothesis." The Guardian

"Should prove invaluable…" Literary Guide

This non-technical but closely-reasoned book is a challenge to the orthodox teaching on evolution known as Neo-Darwinism. The author claims that although Neo-Darwinian theories can possibly account for the evolution of forms, they are quite inadequate to explain the evolution of functions.

Daedalus or Science and the Future

J B S Haldane

Originally published in 1924.

"The essay is brilliant. Sparkling with wit and bristling with challenges." British Medical Journal

"Predicts the most startling changes." Morning Post

This volume examines the future of scientific research from religious, philosophical social and economic standpoints.

94pp

Automaton, or the Future of Mechanical Man

H Stafford Hatfield

Originally published in 1928

"It is impossible to do justice to his volume in a brief review…"Daily Herald

At the time of original publication mankind’s chief inventions had been extensions of his senses or limbs. This work prophesies the dawn of an era in which substitutes will gradually be found even for the human brain.

96pp

Gallio or the Tyranny of Science

J W N Sullivan

Originally published in 1927

"So packed with ideas it is not possible to give any adequate résumé of its contents." Times Literary Supplement

"Remarkable monograph…devastating summary of materialism…" Spectator

An attack on the values which science is so successfully imposing upon civilization.
