Review by:
Hugh M. Galbraith

Herein is recorded the thirteenth series of lectures to the laity, sponsored by the New York Academy of Medicine.

Ominous notes are struck by speakers on the The Atom in Civil Life (Lewis Strauss quoting Einstein: 'Atomic energy is here to stay. Are we?'); Food and Civilization (Sir Raphael Cilento: '… the body and the mind of man are essentially the products of the foods that he eats'); Psychiatry For Everyday Needs (William C. Menninger quoting Chisholm: '… because of our immaturity our generation has continued to … war'). The last is an excellent resumé of what dynamic psychiatry may contribute to personal and social problems. Edward Stieglitz ably discusses the new science of gerontology in On Being Old Too Young. Cornelius Rhodes on Perspectives in Cancer Research describes the 'basic science' approach. James Conant presents some practical issues involved in The Interrelation of Pure and Applied Science in the Field of Medicine.
