FACTS AND THEORIES

BEING A CONSIDERATION OF SOME
BIOLOGICAL CONCEPTIONS OF TO-DAY

On "Bias"— On "Dogma" and " Dogmatism "—On "Nature" and
"Science," and on "Facts," "Laws," and "Hypotheses" — On Life
and the Explanations offered thereon — On the Origination of Life :
Biogenesis and Abiogenesis — On the Variability of Living Things, and
on "Darwinism" — What Darwin himself held — The Origin of Man —
" Darwinism " and certain Superstructures : Morality and Morals —
some other " Isms."

"This book should be placed in every convent-, school-, parish-, and private-library
... it should be given as prizes, and quoted from the pulpit, and thumbed in lecture-
rooms and study-clubs. For it diffuses the clear, steady light of reason, reason sure of
its grounds, but conscious of its limitations, throughout a world obscured by the mists
of rationalism." — Month.

"An eminently instructive book. . . . The more wide circulation the volume
obtains, the better in this period of 'popular literature' and 'popular science.'"

Irish Catholic.

MEN OF SCIENCE

"The Society has produced no more timely or helpful volume than this, which,
written by experts and edited by a master, appeals to learned and unlearned
alike."— Tablet.

"Perhaps, if more books of the sort under consideration were written, a better
understanding between science and religion would result ... no longer would we hear
the hoar/ remark that religion is an insuperable obstacle to the full play of scientific
thought." — Interstate Medical Journal (U.S.A.).
