By Carl C Lindegren
THE chilly warfare IN BIOLOGY. by means of Carl C. Lindegren. Ann Arbor, MIich.,
Planarian Press, Inc., 1967. 133 pp. $6.50.
This problem to the various loved dogmas of genetics and evolution
is attention-grabbing examining. Lindegren's reviews in regards to the suppression of
views which problem the underlying assumptions of clinical research
are fairly poignant in view of his trouble in getting this e-book published,
even although he's an exceptional geneticist.
The first bankruptcy, "The video game of Science," and the ultimate 4 chapters,
concerning the phone concept, the beginning of existence, organic evolution, and the
living kingdom, are suitable to the innovations of any biologist. Many scientists
will be annoyed through Lindegren's research, yet by no means bored, and plenty of will
perhaps discover how good taken Lindegren's criticisms usually are.
Anyone who has the development of the Lysenko-Michurin stranglehold
upon Russian genetics, which has been lately comfy, will locate a
lucid dialogue of a few of the experiments of this college. Interspersed in
this component to the e-book are extra reflections upon the impression of enforced
dogma upon clinical development. Geneticists will relish the personal
biographies integrated in "The Architects of Morganism-Mendelism," and
should take to center Lindegren's reviews pertaining to cytoplasmic inheritance
and the ongoing problems in defining the gene.
It is unimaginable that any scientist who has been proficient lately in
this kingdom can learn this booklet with out turning into indignant at least one time or
twice. repeatedly, substitute causes of the knowledge mentioned ensue 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.
