The Biological Revolution PDF

Basic biological research is not in trouble, but support for this cultural product is perhaps more fragile than it should be. We have developed, in this country, in Europe, and in Japan a triumphant record of research accomplishment that has rev­ olutionized our vision of the cell, the body, and the environ­ ment. The genetic code has been unraveled, the means of neuromuscular transmission have been elucidated, we know the fine detail of the cells small geography, and we can de­ scribe the genes of mouse and man in chemical terms. But it is less clearly perceived by laity and scientist how this new revo­ lution in biology has been of use in the service of a better medicine or environment. The aim of this series of essays, which grew out of a symposium at the First International Congress of Cell Biology, is to instruct us all in the use that has been made of our new knowledge. In the fields of cancer, behavior, reproduction, genetic engineering, and environmental monitoring, practical results of our new knowledge are already apparent and more are just at hand. But neither the general public nor scientists working in their own narrow disciplines necessarily ap­ preciate these developments. Perhaps it is all just too new, too experimental, to permit anyone to gain a proper perspective on what we have done or have the potential of doing.

This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to experience the absolute intellectual arrogance of the biological psychiatrist at the zenith of the 'biological revolution'.

The ‘Scientific Revolution’ in Biology | SpringerLink Harvey’s revolution and the background to it illustrate the process by which scientific ideas change. When we compare Harvey’s writings about physiology with those of Descartes, we see how the Scientific Revolution was connected to the study of life. At the same time, we start to understand why Aristotelianism persisted in biology and
