Descripción

FIRST EDITION. xv, 99 pp; table. Original cloth. Signature of former owner on front flyleaf, else Very Good+, in dust jacket. The John Danz Lectures. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1962 was awarded jointly to Francis Harry Compton Crick, James Dewey Watson and Maurice Hugh Frederick Wilkins 'for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material.' 'Crick regarded the discovery of the double helix as a powerful example of the experimental and theoretical methods by which complex problems in biology could be reduced to fundamental laws of physics and chemistry. Indeed, throughout his scientific career he was driven by his conviction that the origins and processes of life, including human consciousness and free will, could be explained entirely in rational, scientific terms. In a series of lectures published under the title Of Molecules and Men (1966), he formulated his stance against what he called vitalism, the belief that life, evolution, and consciousness were generated and directed by a metaphysical force not subject to verification by experiment. An avowed atheist, Crick resigned as a fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, after one year when the college decided to erect a chapel, which he considered an offensive anachronism' (Profiles in Science, The Francis Crick Papers, National Library of Medicine Web site).
