THE chilly battle IN BIOLOGY. by means of Carl C. Lindegren. Ann Arbor, MIich.,
Planarian Press, Inc., 1967. 133 pp. $6.50.
This problem to the various adored dogmas of genetics and evolution
is interesting examining. Lindegren's reviews in regards to the suppression of
views which problem the underlying assumptions of medical research
are quite poignant in view of his trouble in getting this publication published,
even although he's a superb geneticist.
The first bankruptcy, "The online game of Science," and the ultimate 4 chapters,
concerning the telephone conception, the beginning of existence, organic evolution, and the
living country, are proper to the innovations of any biologist. Many scientists
will be annoyed via Lindegren's research, yet by no means bored, and lots of will
perhaps notice 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 comfortable, will locate a
lucid dialogue of a few of the experiments of this college. Interspersed in
this component to the publication are extra reflections upon the impact of enforced
dogma upon medical development. Geneticists will enjoy the personal
biographies integrated in "The Architects of Morganism-Mendelism," and
should take to center Lindegren's reviews relating cytoplasmic inheritance
and the continued problems in defining the gene.
It is not possible that any scientist who has been knowledgeable lately in
this kingdom can learn this booklet with no turning into indignant at least one time or
twice. time and again, substitute reasons of the knowledge stated happen to the
reader. i'm confident, in spite of the fact that, that Lindegren's iconoclasm, good founded
in the clinical strategy, will greater than pay off the reader of this book.
